TRACKS: Wishing Well

Softer Still are an indie dream-pop band from Shepperton, Surrey consisting of wide-eyed sonic explorers Grant Williams (lead vocals/guitar), Ellie O'Shea (backing vocals/bass), Alexander Williams (guitar) and Ollie Kitson (drums).

'Wishing Well', released on April 14th, is the first single to come from the blissed-out quartet’s second EP 'Visions Of You'. It’s a wistful, dreamy track which follows on from their self-titled EP released in November 2016, a record that attracted attention from the NME, Clash, BBC Introducing and Steve Lamacq, as well as catching the ear of American shoegazers DIIV, who invited Softer Still to support them at London's Electric Ballroom in September. Proving that Softer Still is an act for all indie generations they also supported ‘80s janglers The Railway Children at the 100 Club. Likewise, proving that Softer Still have a hard centre they say: “‘Wishing Well’ is a pop song that deals with a jealous relationship between two friends, with one of them becoming obsessed, wanting more than just a simple friendship.” Meaning that for all their dream-pop beauty, there is a dark side to Softer Still’s supersweet tunes. Softer Still's second EP 'Visions Of You' is set for release on 28th July and you can catch them live at The Great Escape on Friday 19 May at The East Street Tap (stage time 2.40pm).

'Stunning new single...Anchored by a twisting guitar riff, it’s a delightfully breezy and laid-back sunbathing anthem with an undeniably catchy melody' - NME

'Lush, beautifully composed dream pop, the Surrey newcomers are reminiscent of Beach House, Galaxie 500 or perhaps even early Wild Nothing. Chiming, emotionally gripping shoegaze with a lysergic feel.' - Clash Mag

'The four-piece glide into view in an ethereal shimmer of shoegazey guitars and light vocals' - Bittersweet Symphonies
