Dead Soft shared a video for the ultra catchy, fuzz-laden track "Problems", taken from last year's 'Big Blue' album.
Regarding the "Problems" video, the band said "This video was a total mystery to us until the moment we saw it. We shot it over the course of an evening in front of a green screen in our friends’ garage. Brock took the footage away to his animation station and a few months later sent us this demonic care bear video. He’s a genius!"
Hailing from the British Columbian island of Gabriola, Dead Soft have been a source of growing excitement in the Canadian underground for longer than most bands who are yet to release their debut full length. Like their late ‘80s and early ‘90s forebearers in the Pacific Northwest, the three-piece traffic in a sound that blends a penchant for fuzzed out noise and a rough hewn intensity with a sharp melodic sensibility, and have built a burgeoning reputation through live shows and constant touring, sharing stages with artists like Bully, The Breeders, Broken Social Scene, The Courtneys and Great Grandpa, as well as releasing a stream of DIY EPs and cassettes.
The band’s LP, Big Blue is out now on Toronto indie stalwart Arts & Crafts. The culmination of almost three years of work, Big Blue refines and focuses the elements that made the band’s early releases so promising while blowing up their cathartic, fuzzed-out power pop to a massive scale. Through a creative process beset with hardships and uncertainty the album is a testament to Dead Soft’s unwavering commitment to their vision, and a powerful guitar record about taking a leap of faith to find the life you want.
