Without warning, Portland’s Soft Kill and El Paso’s Lesser Care announced a split release today and released it to streaming. Pre-orders for the Lesser Care/Soft Kill split are now live on the a La Carte web store here.
Soft Kill’s brilliant A-side “Always Running” was previously only released as a demo version on Not Quite Dracula Music via Cercle Social Records. This studio version of the song shines and encapsulates the sound and tone Soft Kill has achieved and honed over years of releases and relentless touring. “Always Running” comes off the heels of 2020’s Dead Kids, R.I.P City and in advance of 2022’s forth-coming full-length.
After a string of self-released EPs and their 2022’s Underneath, Besides Me debut LP, Lesser care offers a breath of fresh air with a shimmering B-Side “Shiver.” Building upon their refined style, Lesser Care explores the limits of their sound while effortlessly incorporating blast beats showcasing their raw take on dream pop.
The bands will be touring together this fall. Dates are below.
