Softcult Share New Single/Video "9 Circles"

Canadian indie pop/shoegaze duo Softcult (made up of Twin siblings Phoenix and Mercedes Arn-Horn) have shared their new single “9 Circles” and its accompanying music video.

The song is taken from their brand new EP ‘Heaven‘, out today, 24th May via Easy Life Records. Buy your copy here.

In a previous press release, they elaborated on the EP:

This EP has an underlying theme, although the songs themselves may seem eclectic and wide ranging. We wanted to write about the contradictions within our society, what an ideal world looks like, and how close or far we are from achieving that reality. What is “heaven” anyway? It probably depends on who you ask… Is heaven a reward? A place that we eventually go to if we play our cards right and live by a set list of rules while alive on this planet? Who makes those rules? How do those rules impact us? Maybe heaven isn’t a utopian destination for those who have been judged capriciously to be worthy of entry. Maybe our lives on this earth, currently, are more than a trivial test that guarantees an afterlife we can’t know exists.”
