Track Premiere: Soft White Sixties “Follow Me”


Plucked off the band’s new EP, due out Dec. 2.

By Blurt Staff

They’re called the Soft White Sixties and have an album (2014’s Get Right)
and a self-titled EP to their credit thus far. The L.A. (by way of the Bay Area) rockers, together since 2010, are gearing up for an extremely busy year of nonstop touring. To prime the pump, on Dec. 2 they will be dropping Ocean Way, a new 4-song EP, and we are proud to share an exclusive peek with our readership. Check out “Follow Me”:

Vocalist Octavio Genera describes “Follow Me” as  “a last effort plea off Ocean Way—when you want so bad to help someone, but realize you have no say in the matter.” Musically, the track is a sinewy blend of the band’s signatures – a big, booming beat, rippling psychedelic guitars, and charismatic vocals. The band assembled the new EP following a relocation from San Francisco to L.A., pitching tents in Hollywood’s Ocean Way Studios (hence the name of the EP) and recharging their creative batteries. They worked with Matt Linesch (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) to craft some of the hookiest tunes of their entire career.

With plenty of touring forecast for the near future – business as usual for them – they also plan to polish off a new album with producer Elijah Thomson (Father John Misty) for a 2017 release, so keep your eyes (and ears) peeled. You can read a recent interview with the band at the L.A. Weekly.
