Band of the Day: Softlightes

NAME: Softlightes
HOMETOWN: San Diego, California


HOW I HEARD ABOUT THEM: I pulled their album out of my slush pile and noticed they were on Modular, who rep bands like Van She.
LATEST RELEASE: Say No to Being Cool — Say Yes to Being Happy
SONG LISTENED TO: “GirlKillsBear” [MP3 at Keytars & Violins]
WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE: Soothing hip electronic-based band. Reminds me of a mellow Hot Chip or a sister to Ratatat. Atmospheric, pretty sound. Although the recorded stuff is sorta slow, judging by their lyrical references (In “GirlKillsBear” they say they want to “dance dance dance” and talk about needles dropping) they probably break it down live.
1 to 5 RATING: 3
