Dream-gaze syndicate Soft Science have announced their new single ‘Diverging’ off their new ‘Maps’ album, released via Test Pattern Records. The accompanying video for ‘Diverging’ was directed by Matthew Maxwell. 

bio / about
The 10 tracks on this album establish the band among California’s leading dream pop artists. This follows up their double A-side singles ‘Sooner/ Paris’ (including a wistful-blue cover of Northern Picture Library’s (NPL) ‘Paris’ as the B-side) and ‘Undone / I Don’t Know Why I Love You’
Soft Science received a helping hand on this album from longtime friend and engineer Eric Stenmen (AWOLNATION, Tokyo Police Club) with mastering at Malibu’s Black Bear 11 Studio and mixing of ‘I Don’t Know Why I Love You’ at Redbull Studios in Los Angeles.

“The lyrics on ‘Maps’ are reflective of the process of time passing, relationships breaking apart, and coming together. Overall, there is an element of the idea of appreciating the time we have with the ones we love. The lyrics on ‘Maps’ are, at times, a stream of consciousness of everyday life and, at times, are more abstract but always with an undercurrent of processing life,” says Katie Haley.
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. 
Soft Science rose from the ashes of California Oranges – a natural transition for Katie Haley (Holiday Flyer) and twins Ross and Matt Levine, having contributed to each other’s music projects for over a decade. Soft Science were joined by bass player Mason DeMusey to create unique dream pop music, inspired by 90s shoegaze and 60s brit pop, eventually solidifying their sound with the addition of Tony Cale (English Singles) on drums.
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. 
Soft Science has played live with the likes of The Chills, Literature and Dead Leaf Echo, and has released a split 7” with The Luxembourg Signal, featuring Soft Science’s well-received track ‘Breaking’.
