TUNE GIRL SKIN - Soft Gun
“'Soft Gun’ rests on a bed of warm guitars, bittersweet strings and frontman Sid Simons’ suitably serene vocals. Atop light guitar fuzz and aching violin, Simons sings wistfully, “If I was in your shoes / I would reassure you.” It reads like a retro pop or folk rock gem.”
'Soft Gun' is the second single to be lifted from 'Shade is on the other side', the debut album by Brooklyn, New York based GIRL SKIN. Combining fragile folk and delicate art-rock to create ethereal chamber-pop songs that reveal the most private thoughts of frontman and songwriter Sid Simons, it exists at the point where quiet and tender folk meets dramatic guitar-pop. It nods to icons such as The Beatles, The Velvet Underground and T. Rex, through to Wilco and newer acts such as Mt. Joy.
