SOFT LAD has been hurt and broken before. But now, the queer singer-songwriter shares a song about moving beyond past pain into a fresh, happy love with “365.”
You’re so heavenly, you’re so divine
Now I can’t believe that you’re all mine
Slow and steadily,
We took our time
It’s a ride, 365
“365” is the lead single fresh off SOFT LAD’s recent EP, Give It A Go, released earlier this month. It delves into the complexities of overcoming old wounds and embracing a newfound, fulfilling connection.
With a cheery, bright beat and an optimistic tone, SOFT LAD’s track feels comforting and relatable. It’s a love song that doesn’t hide the imperfections, a refreshing take on a beloved genre.
This is an unusual song because it’s about how much I love my fiancée rather than me whining about the past and singing about negative things that I’m too scared to say out loud in real life! It’s about the process of falling in love, when it happens slowly and steadily and when it’s supposed to, and blossoms out of a rich and authentic friendship.
~ SOFT LAD (Sophie Galpin)
The London-based artist thrives in her vulnerability. Her work spotlights raw emotion, drawing in listeners who want to feel their feelings alongside a new favorite artist. Give It A Go features five tracks that Sophie says are “chronicling the queer experience with all its highs, lows, euphoria and frustrations” with a sound reminiscent of the ‘90s with an indie and alt-pop twist.
