Softcult have returned with another spine-tingling piece of alt-rock gorgeousness.
Softcult have followed up their ‘Year Of The Snake’ EP from earlier this year with a stunning new track.
It’s called ‘One In A Million’ and shows off the dreamiest parts of the band’s sound via a haunting instrumental and gorgeous vocal refrains.
It’s a song that Mercedes Arn-Horn admits started out one way and then swerved to another as she came to terms with what she was writing about:
Originally, I was writing from a frustrating perspective, expressing my feelings about the people in our society who think they are the exception and can justify repeating selfish actions, no matter who they harm in the process. As the song began to take shape, it also became about my own personal insecurities and fear of being ordinary and unexceptional, but the more I thought about it and wrote about it, I realized that accepting how similar we all are as human beings is a comforting sentiment, if not a vital one. The more we relate to each other and acknowledge our similarities, the more empathy and compassion we will have for one another. The more divided we are, the longer these issues get drawn out instead of solved. It’s important to not only celebrate our diversity and unique-ness, but also to remember that at a very basic level we are all more the same than different.”
It’s stunning and sensationally beautiful and waiting for you below:
