Soft Complex - Barcelona

"You invite the pain to come in and we begin again"

Washington DC based band Soft Complex, like so many others, thrive on a new wave inflected synth pop that recalls bands like Echo & The Bunnymen and New Order. And, also like many others, they do a mighty fine job of creating pulsing pop songs that manage to be at once laid back and irresistably catchy. Barcelona (also the title of their recent EP) begins with a surprisingly funky guitar before the melody slows down a bit, morphing into gorgeous verses. Plus, the band has played with #1 Hits favorite The Sounds, so you know they've gotta be good.

Songs with Barcelona in the title inevitably end up brilliant or rubbish - there is no inbetween. Luckily, this is brilliant :)
