Watch Softcult share new single ‘Drain’

They’ve also announced their new EP ‘See You In The Dark’.

With their new EP ‘See You In The Dark’ set for release on 24th March via Easy Life Records, Softcult are sharing new single ‘Drain’.

“It’s disgusting how making a profit is a higher priority for those in power than a sustainable environment,” Mercedes says of the track. “Seeing hollow shows of performative ‘action’ from these world leaders and multi-million dollar companies that don’t offer any actual solutions just adds to my frustration, because it feels like we’re being manipulated and lied to in the most disgustingly condescending way.”

“There are people out there who could end world hunger right now in exchange for 10% less of their billions,” she continues. “There are legislations that could reverse climate change in time to save this dying planet and spare future generations a pretty horrific existence. But these bloated fucking dragons would rather die hoarding more wealth than they could ever spend in a lifetime than part with a little to help save the world. To think these billionaires actually give a shit about us or our quality of life is just naive. So because of the one percent’s greed, their legacy will be our eventual extinction.”

Speaking about their upcoming EP, inspired by Nietzsche’s famous quote: “Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you”, she adds, “It is an analogy for the things we’re afraid to face. It represents confronting our innermost fears, usually in those vulnerable moments lying awake at night when our minds are racing. It’s sort of an acknowledgement of our darkness, and the darkness of others, like ‘hey, I see you’. While it’s important to acknowledge our darkness, we also can’t submit to it. We have to strive to be better people, and leave behind a legacy of positive change. I think it’s important to do everything we can to try and make a positive impact on the world, even when that feels impossible. Because if we don’t at least try, who will?”
