LISTEN TO “THE LIGHT” HERE

Brooklyn-via Boston singer/songwriter Soft Fangs is set to release his new album The Light this Friday, March 18th via Exploding In Sound (cassette) and Disposable America Records (vinyl + digital). The long awaited full-length debut from John Lutkevich was recorded in the attic of his childhood home in the suburbs of Massachusetts. Consequence of Sound are sharing the premiere of The Light in full, claiming the album is “built on heavy-hearted, reverberating guitars that are as nostalgic for their mournful tone as they are for their reminiscence of Sparklehorse. While this crunchy melancholy permeates most of the album, Lutkevich also manages to fold in other indie rock influences that prevent the record from dragging you so deep into the self-reflective sadness that there feels like no hope.” CoS expands on the album, noting… “Still, the record seeks to muse “about death, life, nature and all the little things people forget,” and so the lyrics delivered in Lutkevich’s hushed tone are there to remind you it’s okay to be not okay every now and then.”
Speaking about the album himself, Lutkevich added, “The Light is a very special record to me. It is the culmination of about a year of home recordings, some written before my first EP came out. I was struggling with a lot of different things at the time, so I basically just recorded my way out of it. It was a rough year, but I emerged from it brighter than I’ve ever been before.”

ABOUT SOFT FANGS:

Raised in the outskirts of Massachusetts, now living in Brooklyn, Soft Fangs is the latest musical outlet of John Lutkevich.  His songwriting, which has been compared to the likes of Elliott Smith, Sparklehorse, Radiohead and Nick Drake, combines introspective and poetic lyricism with fragile guitar and haunting melodies.
His debut LP The Light, which was recorded in his childhood home, expands and refines many of the themes found on his first EP (Soft Fangs, 2014). Musings about death, life, nature and all the little things people forget are expressed through warbling keyboards, acoustic guitar, crashing drums and whispered vocals.”

 

The Light is due out March 18th via Disposable America and Exploding In Sound Records. Digital copies of the album are available for review consideration. Please emaildan@brixtonagency.com. The band is available for interviews upon request.
