Sharp and sensible, new musical duo Soft Swells nails the canny pop sensibility of today's indie landscape on their self-titled LP, making full use of an arsenal of sounds, including stuttering and snapping drums, handclaps, a ringing xylophone, and subtle electronics.
Soft Swells is the collaborative effort of longtime indie songwriter and gifted storyteller Tim Williams and the talents of Brooklyn's Phonograph mainstay Matt Welsh. The band released a hot 7-inch late summer 2011 which featured new tracks 'Every Little Thing' and 'Lifeboats' which gained airplay at KCRW and KROQ and started a Soft Swells buzz in Los Angeles.
'Soft Swells channel the Technicolor guitar-pop of Summerteeth-era Wilco, balancing high-flying synthesizer parts against guitars straight from the garage.' - MTV Buzzworthy
