Diamond by Soft Set

Darkenin Heart

Diamond is the second single and matching video from Soft Set's new album Still Life, which will be out later this summer, coming a little after the release of More More More earlier this year. The gloomy and somber song was inspired by a true crime podcast, and was mastered by Simon Scott of Slowdive.

Soft Set’s James Gray talks about the song's theme: “We heard of this story of a boy who killed his mother and then himself in Jefferson Township, NJ, in the late 80s and the whole story was just so bizarre. He seemed to be a good kid and all of that changed within a matter of months leading up to the tragic night when everything changed. It’s a fascinating story and there’s a great podcast called ‘The Devil Within’ that explores what happened and what possibly drove this boy to do what he did. Check it out!”

In contrast to the previous single's crisper dreampop style, the new song appears to be more post punk-oriented, with a more menacing tone.

Still Life is Soft Set's debut full length album, mixed by Shae Brossard (Arcade Fire, Godspeed You Black Emperor).
