Made up of Tori Schachne and Colton Toy, Soft Streak is a local electronic duo with an double helping of soul. After meeting during their respective collegiate musical pursuits, the two bonded quickly over their love of old blues records and new electro pop tracks. Deciding to create music together was a natural progression of their friendship, and over years of producing music and writing songs together for television and for other artists, the idea of Soft Streak was born. Still in its infancy, the project affords Schachne and Toy the ability to express their own creativity, inspired not only by classic albums, but also by the unique culture of their SoCal home.
Soft Streak’s debut single is “Ride,” an unbelievably cool track full of beats that will coax your hips into swaying before you even realize what’s happening. As the track swaggers along, Schachne’s relaxed, rasping vibrato hums along, backed by a chorus of angelic harmonies. The song describes the desire to give up control of oneself, the need for excitement within a dull existence: “I’ll be your getaway car / Down for the ride if we go too far / You’ll take control just before we crash / You’ll let me know if i go too fast.” If you’ve ever fantasized about running away from the tedium of everyday life, this song is sure to resonate down to your very soul.
