Single: Softener – Brindle

‘Inside my head’s a porchlight, I’ll leave it on for you’

Softener are a band from Fresno, California, who make down-tuned grunge with dour, emo-influenced melodies and riffs. ‘Brindle’ is their latest single, taken from their new self-titled EP. It’s a story of infatuation and devotion to a muse, wrapped up in cathartic, stoned production values that smother you from the inside. The vocals are unassumingly sweet and soothing which makes for a pleasing contrast.
