bio / about
Hailing from the Sacramento Valley, Soft Science fuses melody, sound and texture of 60s pop and 90s shoegaze like molecular gastronomists blend physics and chemistry to transform food. Together this 5-piece band have managed to create their own sweet blend of modern pop music with a sonic edge.
The band’s members are influenced by such bands ranging from the Zombies and Beach Boys to Lush, Teenage Fanclub, Ride, Pale Saints, New Order, and Jesus and Mary Chain, along with newer artists such as Beach House and Frankie Rose.
In 2011, Soft Science debuted with the ‘High and Lows’ LP, with Pop Matters noting their “potential to become one of the great Left Coast power pop bands.” Their 2013 ‘Detour’ LP received acclaim, ranked #2 in Jack Rabid’s Top 40 in The Big Takeover Magazine.
