- Four Stories EP by The Soft City
1 review. Write a review for us »
The Soft City have illustrious Indiepop credentials. Initially formed by ex-Comet Gain and Kicker man Phil Sutton, this seasoned indie kid relocated to NEEEW YOOORK CITAY and now fronts The Soft City. Here we are treated to four tales on one marvelously presentable 7". I'm sure you know what to expect here, decent Indiepop, that's what. Saying that, this is a little more varied than a lot of the examples available in the genre, which makes for a double bonus. Things kick of in typical fashion with a dose of highly addictive jangle-pop courtesy of 'Dear Claire' but 'Buttoned Up' changes it up, introducing a laided country-rock feel to what seems to be their usual infectious pop formula. Oddly, the organ playing hints at Dire Straits...in a good way though...if that's possible (i think it is). Flip it and the country induced flavour continues. This one, strangely enough, echoes the melody to 'Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head' whilst sitting very much in Belle And Sebastian territory. The final track 'Let Me On Board' plays on 60's French pop themes and is thge bounciest of the tracks presented here. A must for you hair-pin-pin-badge lot. Great stuff.
