Ahead of the release of their new EP ‘Year Of The Snake’ on 4th February, Canadian duo Softcult are sharing their latest powerful single ‘Gaslight’.
Exploring “the turmoil of existing within an abusive relationship”, the band’s Mercedes Arn-Horn says, “We wrote this song about gaslighting and how it really messes with your head and your perception of reality. Being in a relationship that constantly makes you question your decisions and actions, your feelings and emotions, even your soundness of mind. It’s a tactic that many abusers and groomers will use to tear down your defences and make you easier to manipulate. We wanted to raise awareness of this manipulation technique so that whoever hears the song will be able to recognize those red flags if they encounter that kind of behaviour.”
