The Soft Rider “The Pool”
Inspired by both JG Ballard’s “Atrocity Exhibition” and California’s psychedelic luminescence, this first EP from The Soft Rider revisits synth-pop and electronic/industrial music through the prism of Los Angeles as fascinating as it is chilling. The freeways lined with palm trees and the reflections of a radiating sun respond to a pulsation set at 128BPM, pink-candy melodies and the distant echo of waves, metal and concrete. Somewhere between Giorgio Moroder and Throbbing Grisles, The Soft Rider dystopian disco describes a world where silicon dreams, ice cream parlours and eternal sunshine melt with hi-tech surveillance and survival strategies. Recorded between Brussels and Los Angeles, the record features vocals by K. Hoffstedt and A. Edelman and comes as 12″ EP edition and digital download. A super limited edition ( only 50 copies) Vinyl+ handscreenprinted beach bag is also available.
“A mix of sunkissed surfing vibes, italo-disco, and synthetic dreams enrobed in powerful acid.” The 405 magazine
