MP3: "Love or Music" -

Soft Metals is the electronic romance of Ian Hicks and Patricia Hall played on vintage synthesizers and drum machines. Brought together in April of 2009 through a common love of late 70s and early 80s synthesizer music, they met up to write songs of their own. Inspiration came to them by way of experimental noise and avant garde, early industrial music, minimal synth, 1980s Chicago house synth pop and Italo disco. While making music together, they fell in love adding romance to their sound. Building songs from moody, experimental, and improvised sessions together, they never know what influence will have the upper hand. It's simplest to say Soft Metals make dark, romantic, electronic dance music.

Soft Metals' "The Cold World Melts EP" will drop via Captured Tracks Aug. 10, 2010.
