Soft Metals: Soft Metals
Buy! - (Captured Tracks)
Currently calling Portland home, but with plans to move to Los Angeles later this year, Soft Metals are the boyfriend/girlfriend duo of analogue synth maestro Ian Hicks and vocalist/keyboardist Patricia Hall. Their debut full-length album is a strong set of dark, romantic, retro-tinged electronic dance music that skillfully mixes 80s synth-pop, brooding post-punk, slick Italo-disco, and early industrial styles into its own icy, seductive sound. 7/1/2011 - Alex
