Luis Vasquez has been inspiring this shoegaze band for 10 years, after a pause now finally presenting his debut album. Shoegaze naturally implies howling guitars and hypnotic basslines. “Circles” resembles The Cure’s “One Hundred Years” with extra guitar noise and an echoing voice. “Out Of Time” is remarkable due to its shrill yet catchy synth tune. Just been dumped? Put on “When It’s Over” and let the tears flow. The Sigur Rós-like melancholy invites you to hang your head low and start shuffling on that square metre. “Dead Love”, “Parallels” and “We Are We” make you think of Cocteau Twins, though less melodic. “Into The Depths” shows more variety with slow drums, reminding me of Zola Jesus. Not that accessible, but that’s exactly why Soft Moon gives so much in return. The ultimate album to get sad, you have to admit that’s just lovely!
