LISTENING POST

Listen to ‘Tell Me’, from LA duo Soft Metals.

Soft Metals‘ eponymous debut album of 2011 wasn’t half bad, but with it the LA duo struggled to lift themselves above the synthwave pile and others playing dreamy ’80s electro in the vein of Gary Numan.

For their new album, ‘Lenses’ (out July 16 via Captured Tracks), they’ve kept it 80s but picked up the pace to something that resembles vintage house. Check out lead single ‘Tell Me’ below.
