Song of the Day: Soft Hair’s “Lying Has To Stop”

Today’s song of the day, “Lying Has To Stop” comes to us from the psychedelic indie-pop group, Soft Hair. This piece is part of the latest self-titled album from Connan Mockasin and Sam Dust, formerly of LA Priest and Late of the Pier. The vocals on this thing display a tasteful combination of trembling falsettos with prominent vibratos, mixed with colorful synths. This song is fun, yet eccentric with its pulsating electronic sounds, and sonic experimentative voices. You can hear a clear influence of Prince while the band’s aesthetics give the impression of a Bowie, Ziggy Stardust era, muddled with a Silence of the Lambs’ Buffalo Bill appearance- out there, but definitely cool, refreshing, and new.

About Nicole Garcia (14 Articles)
Writer, pastry-eater, excellent car DJ, and Morrissey apologist. A sucker for a catchy melody, strong percussion, and some gritty guitars. Equally, an upright bass solo at a dimly lit jazz bar will set my soul ablaze. Some of my favorite albums range from Curtis Fuller's Bluesette, Radiohead's In Rainbows, and The Strokes' Is This It. I should add that I religiously listen to Billie Holiday every single time it rains. Though Jazz and Rock music varieties are my go-to genres, I try to be receptive to different sounds-- hence my unwavering love for Sam Cooke, Lee "Scratch" Perry, and Serge Gainsbourg. On most days I run on caffeine, ice cream, and avocados. I’m also an amateur baker and wannabe French New Wave film connoisseur. When I'm not listening to music, I can be found taking pictures of my two dogs or thumbing through used book sections searching for Penguin classics. Cholula >Tapatio.
