Blue Swirl with Softsurf - An Interview


Como é de praxe aqui no TBTCI, chega a vez de mais uma daquelas preciosidades absolutamente desconhecidas e que merecem toda atenção, como é o caso dos japoneses sônicos e sonhadores do Softsurf.

Os caras são novatos, não tem ainda 1 ano de banda, e nada oficial, apenas seu primeiro single "Blue Swirl" que serve como cartão de apresentação. A música é feita para derreter sonhos, claro, sob influência máxima de MBV e coloque aí também, uma das prediletas, de 9 entre 10 japoneses, o Fleeting Joys.

Assim é o Softsurf, shoegaze clássico para gazers fanáticos, e a estreia é sim, altamente promissora.

Aguardemos os próximos passos dos caras, por hora fritemos ao som deles.
