Portland Oregon’s Soft Kill, ripped through 2016 with their first release on Profound Lore Records “Choke”. Once more bringing their unique blend of guitar driven sad rock, they are laced with a pop sensibility and flawless songwriting that seamlessly transcends post punk. Soft Kill have matured into a powerhouse, having released what is considered a new classic in the genre An Open Door in 2010, they are now effortlessly redefining it. As always with frontman Tobias Grave’s powerful, raw emotional storytelling, and guitar work by Conrad Vollmer, along with Owen Glendower on bass. Soft Kill write songs about loss, battles with drug addiction, the many tragedies that come from that life and the empty space suspended between mourning and celebration.
Choir Boy consists of Adam Klopp (vocal, synths, guitar, piano, percussion and sequencing), Katrina Marie Rick Peterson (vocals), Bret Meisenbach (guitar), Jacob Hall (drums), Kyle Hooper (keys) and Chaz Costello (bass), with strings by Alyssa Pyper. The album was recorded at Studio Studio Dada in Provo Utah.
Thematically, the album touches on topics such as mental health, relationships, rebirth.
