The Soft Moon
Dark hypnotic sounds, mixed with Krautrock and post-punk
The project of multi instrumentalist Luis Vasquez, The Soft Moon gives dark hypnotic sounds mixed with Krautrock a new life with a stripped-down approach. Vasquez is also inspired by his Afro-Cuban heritage and the wide-open spaces of the Mojave dessert where he was raised.
Today The Soft Moon announces plans to unleash Exister, the powerful, vulnerably therapeutic new full-length album, due out September 23rd, 2022 on Sacred Bones Records.
“The whole point of this record was to share every emotion that I feel,” says The Soft Moon’s Luis Vasquez. “No two songs are the same. It’s about existing in the world as a human being and experiencing many emotions and experiences throughout life.”
And so hence the title Exister, a record rooted in the ecstatic joys and crippling lows that life can throw up and how just hanging on and existing is sometimes all we have. “Exister is my way of saying ‘I’m here, deal with it.’” Vasquez says.
