LOUD WOMEN’s favorite Canadian-duo Softcult released a hard hitting single/short film, ‘Dress’. This is the darkest track on Softcult’s upcoming EP See You In The Dark, out 24th March 2023 via Easy Life Records.
‘Dress’ pulls back the veil around consent and trauma. The track’s upbeat instrumentals are a stark contrast against the dark subject matter.
“This song is about consent; it’s about saying ‘no’ and having it happen to you anyway. It’s about being followed while walking alone at night or being cornered in a bar when we’re just trying to have a night out with our friends. It’s about the lingering fear and trauma that haunts us long after these experiences have happened. It’s about how these experiences make us feel powerless and change the way we see ourselves.”Mercedes
The accompanying short film stars Sam Bielanski (PONY) and was directed, produced, and edited by Mercedes.
Softcult will be on an epic tour so fans in the US, Canada, and the UK can catch them live.
