Orb Tapes:

"Soft as Snow is a Norwegian avant-pop duo based in Berlin. Their music effortlessly straddles the structure and determinism of club and “pop” music and the abstract expressionism of experimental music. Crackling, pixelated synth lines, drum machines, and pleading, introspective vocals coalesce to form a unified sound world – one in which our digital existence precedes and overshadows our physical bodies. “Organ Candy” is a sonic articulation of this conflict.

Following recent releases “Bit Rot” and “Massage” on Infinite Machine and Jollies Records respectively, this new collection of tracks continues the endeavor of illuminating our own abstracted and refracted realities. The smoothness of a black screen is mirrored in an ethereal, half- whispered vocal line while the jagged and jarring physical circumstances of our world are reflected in an accompanying wave of crunching, deteriorating synth wails. “Organ Candy” is a coexisting of these two worlds, a recognition of their inextricable link – dreamlike and bleak, ensnaring and liberating. The duo's music contains an alluring thread of the recognizable couched in an undoing of that same familiarity, or what The Wire succinctly describes as “electronic music pushed to the brink of collapse.”

Soft as Snow has been recording and releasing music for just under 10 years. They have toured mainly, performing in clubs, festivals and art galleries internationally including LEV Festival, Roskilde Festival, Lunchmeat Festival, Athens Digital Arts Festival, Insomnia Festival Berghain, :/ /about blank Corsica Studios, and Disconnect and Roter Salon Volksbühne. Their entrancing live performances pair their shapeshifting brand of deconstructed pop with the posthuman, warped visuals of Guynoid to create a world of uneasy metamorphosis. The duo has also received significant critical acclaim for past albums and has been featured in DAZED, iD, The Wire, DJ Mag, Mixmag, RA, The Fader, FACT, Clash, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 and KCRW."
