Golau Glau – Soft Silver Young

Above the shuffling, tinny rhythm of Soft Silver Young float some ethereally twee vocals. The whole thing sounds like an elegiac hymnal, which is unsurprising when you establish the song is about the family who jumped off Beachy Head recently with their already passed infant son. Therefore the song sounds suitably sad, but also hopeful, as if problems are alleviated and they’re in a better place. Heartland Half Seizure has keyboards that sound like desperate wastelands, while two lost and confused young girls sing a hypnotic nursery rhyme. Its weird, yet affecting and helps make a rather fine single.

Soft Silver Young is released as a free download on Oddnet on July 1st. You'll find it here
