Soft Hair – Lying Has to Stop

The image of two men plastered in green body paint holding a giant yellow boa constrictor dominated Cymbal for a week. But for some reason I kept scrolling past Soft Hair’s Lying Has to Stop. It was part sensory overload. Part nostalgic terror at their Emperor Palpatine-like eyes.

Soft Hair’s music is just as weird. Characterized by velvety synth, bubbly vocals and an undulating beat, Lying Has to Stop feels hyperbolic right from the first lyric, “You’ll find there’s never any time for babes and wine.” But Sam and Connan pick up steam and settle into a nice, perpetual groove.
