Softcult drop new single & video ‘Heaven’

As their European tour with Movements comes to a close, Canadian twin duo Softcult squeeze one more taste of their forthcoming EP into 2023, with latest track ‘Heaven’.

Ethereal and crushingly-heavy in equal parts, the dense swathes of sound on ‘Heaven’ evoke the claustrophobia of body dysmorphia and swells with optimism for better times.

The band comment: “We wrote this song about overcoming dysmorphia and beginning to feel more at home in your own skin. Often the way other people see us isn’t how we see ourselves, and it’s hard to live in a body that doesn’t feel like “you.“ But when you feel seen by the people in your circle, it makes all the difference.

“This song describes that idealistic utopian future that we hope can one day become a reality; a world where everyone is accepted for who they are, where everyone has equal opportunity, where one’s background or identity does no dictate how they are perceived by society, where privilege and advantages are recognized and shared to build stronger communities, and a society that celebrates diversity, difference, and otherness as strengths.”
