Brooklyn-via Boston singer/songwriter Soft Fangs will release his new album The Light on February 19th via Exploding In Sound and Disposable America Records. The full-length debut from John Lutkevich was recorded in the attic of his childhood home in the suburbs of Massachusetts. Consequence of Sound premiered "The Air," the album's first single, claiming the song "musically captures both the tenderness and anxieties that can happen in those formative, youthful years at home. Overblown guitars crunch against pummeling drums as Lutkevich coos softly like a small voice trying to break through the noise of life. It feels like an old demo left in the attic for 20 years, but one that’s aged particularly. "
Soft Fangs aka Lutkevich shared some insight into the song, “I wanted to write a song about someone jumping off a bridge, both in the metaphysical and literal sense. The air represents the space between thoughts and actions, where everything is indeterminate. In my opinion, it's the moment that occurs right before death and right before enormous creative discovery”
ABOUT SOFT FANGS:
Raised in the outskirts of Massachusetts, now living in Brooklyn, Soft Fangs is the latest musical outlet of John Lutkevich. His songwriting, which has been compared to the likes of Elliott Smith, Sparklehorse, Radiohead and Nick Drake, combines introspective and poetic lyricism with fragile guitar and haunting melodies.
His debut LP The Light, which was recorded in his childhood home, expands and refines many of the themes found on his first EP (Soft Fangs, 2014). Musings about death, life, nature and all the little things people forget are expressed through warbling keyboards, acoustic guitar, crashing drums and whispered vocals.”
The Light is due out March 18th via Disposable America and Exploding In Sound Records. Digital copies of the album are available for review consideration. Please email email@example.com. The band is available for interviews upon request.
