SOFT AS SNOW Deep Wave LP Vinyl NEW 2018
Be My Babe
The Norwegian-born, Berlin-based duo Soft as Snow will release their debut album 'Deep Wave' via Houndstooth. It was created by Soft as Snow members Oda Egjar Starheim and Oystein Monsen, with additional mixing and production by WIFE of Tri Angle Records. Their oblique leftfield pop recalls Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, deep Detroit techno, 90s IDM, Fever Ray, cold wave and the 'Mutazione' compilations, but is simultaneously fresh, original and groundbreaking, crowned with Oda's esoteric and otherworldly voice. 'Deep Wave' follows two EPs for the same label - and as with those, the duo still avoid laptops, preferring analogue machinery, samplers, live drums and processed guitars - but this album marks a creative development, with their sound now deeper, more detailed and less simplistic than before.
