ADVERTISMENT

Soft Fangs, much in the same manner as Zeal and Ardor is only a band in aural terms. This is a one man project by John Lutkevich, who described Soft Fangs as 'just a name for the music I make' in an interview with Independent Music News in 2016. This is the second full length release from the Brooklyn based singer songwriter and was apparently written across a year and then recorded in just three days.

There is not a huge amount of variation present within this record and you will know from the opener Elephant Girl whether this is for you. It opens with a delicate acoustic riff that is soon flooded with overdriven guitars and snare lead drum pattern and Lutkevich then lays his soft melodic over this canvas. This is a very laid back and relaxed album but at the same time the production values are rough and unpolished with that rasping over-driven driven guitar guiding most of the songs.
