SOFT LIES: Self-titled: 7”

May 25, 2021

On their Bandcamp, Soft Lies describe trying to achieve a sound on their debut EP which “aims to land somewhere between The Cure’s Disintegration and Nirvana’s In Utero.” Did they achieve this? Maybe. I think I can hear a Nirvana influence, but it would be Nirvana at their most polished. There is certainly a late-’90s/early-’00s vibe to this, the kind that would have made Soft Lies a staple of Warped Tour back then. Who knows, when live music returns, Soft Lies could be a Warped Tour staple for a new generation. –Paul J. Comeau (
