The Soft Moon – Zeros (2012) review

The Soft Moon’s release of Zero’s is a tour
de force excursion into the dream-state of music, where they’ve managed to take
the footprints set down by the likes of Joy Division, The Cure, and other
electronic dark-side visionaries and stand the genre on it’s head, creating not
soundscapes, but etherial dreamscapes that linger behind the curtains, drift in
through a thoughtlessly neglected window, and swirl around the room … not in
a storm, but through shivers that barely register, yet manage to keep drawing
you back with the sense of something subliminally recognized, while lingering
just out of reach.
Soft Moon are not song based, they’ve
stepped far beyond the need for mere words, dancing with illusionary sounds and
image based chord changes, creating an immersion of undulating mid-tempo sexual
offerings with shrouded muffled vocals that entice, whisper, and draw the
listener in through layer after dense atmospheric layer, as if we were to get
close enough to the sound, we’d receive all the answers to all the questions we
could ever imagine.
The Soft Moon are both primal … and they
are the future.
