The Soft Kill/Lesser Care split features "Always Running" by Portland's own Soft Kill and El Paso standouts, Lesser Care, dreamy-blast beat filled track "Shiver".
Soft Kill's brilliant A-side "Always Running" was previously only released as a demo version on "Not Quite Dracula Music" on Cercle Social Records. This studio version of the song shines and encapsulates the sound and tone Soft Kill has achieved and honed over years of releases and relentless touring. "Always Running" comes off the heels of 2020's "Dead Kids, R.I.P City" and 2022's forth-coming Full Length, and stands on its own as a testament to Soft Kills signature sound.
After a string of self released EP's and 2022's "Underneath, Besides Me" debut LP, Lesser care offers a breath of fresh air with a shimmering B-Side "Shiver". Building upon their refined style, Lesser Care explores the limits of their sound while effortlessly incorporating blast beats showcasing their raw take on dream pop.
