Hypnotic, and the alluring sounds that take one back to the 60s psychedelic scene, which is growing this year in music, “Spellbreaker,” the new single from Soft Lions, off of their upcoming EP, Spellbreaker, is rougher around the edges and leads the listener down a dim light. Not straying away from their retro vibe heard on Earth Energy (2014), the trio doesn’t disappoint and leads for great anticipation for their upcoming EP set to be released July 7th, with a much more somber and heavier angst sound.
Megan Liscomb’s scribbles that have been noted to start off in her diary, break free in the possessed song. “Spellbreaker,” an effortless haunt, holds reassurance, led by Liscomb’s low, throaty and bewitching vocals. Besides crawling in the listener’s ears and adding to the slow grooves, the lyrics add to the quality of the song and a hint of magic that Soft Lions have always contained. “Sarah we can be anything if we want to / our hair is turning white so let’s dye it in rainbows.”
