In the track “Circles”, The Soft Moon throws all caution to the wind and creates the most neo-goth / post-punk track on their album. It’s dark, screeching, but ultimately danceable stuff. Not my favorite track on the very good self-titled debut, but the first with an officially sanctioned video. Enjoy.
Fuck. Even the visuals are Bauhaus-y and goth as fuck.
Take Bauhaus’s rhythm section and mix it with some early The Cure guitar work (and Robert Smith howls) and top it off with hushed, haunted vocals reminiscent of Calla and you’ve got a great track. This is that track. Give it a goth as fuck name like “Dead Love” and you’re even closer to black clothed romantic misery. Just fucking make sure you haven’t seen the sun in a couple of months or else you might miss the subtle tones of macabre love hidden deep in the pit of despair that is this achingly lovely song.
Did i win the goth description contest yet?
Seriously though. This song rips ass. It’s fucking excellent.
