Soft Sports – “Gordon” premiere
Taking inspiration from artists such as George Harrison and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Soft Sports are the answer to your psychedelic-folk dreams. The newcomers use their Americana and soul infused rock to contort their influences into something subtly psychotropic and off-beat, reviving political-folk themes for the iPod generation.
The single was recorded live via tape, capturing the band’s intoxicating chemistry and showcasing their musicianship.
Of the single, frontman Christopher Matthewson, says “we’re best represented in a live setting where we can alter arrangement on the spot and we’ve done our best to recreate this on the record. ‘Gordon’ is an exploration into the ambivalence and calamity of the global zeitgeist of recent years. The character represents everyone and no one.”
