Created in 2012, The Soft Spots started out as a duet, featuring vocalist, guitarist, and founder, Shane Gallagher, and their drum machine, named “Dr. Deadbeat.” The band then grew into the quartet (quintet, if you include “Dr. Deadbeat”) featured on their upcoming debut album. They have experienced a great deal of local and global notoriety, including “Artist of the Month” on The Deli - Philadelphia’s website, multiple features on member-supported radio station, WXPN, and radio plays on DKFM, Ynot Radio, The Reverb and Lost in Radio in the UK, and Crystal Daze web radio stations. Several reviews of their material have appeared on such blogs as Little Indie Blogs, Right Chord Music, The Key, and Destroy//Exist. The band also boasts a successful Kickstarter campaign, which raised over $1,000 in funds to finance their debut music video.
The Soft Spots just completed work on their upcoming debut full-length release entitled, Rainy Daze. All tracking was done at the home studio of guitarist, Truong Ta, who also mixed and engineered the sessions. Final mixing of the album was done by producer/engineer and musician, Jeff Zeigler (Relay, Arc in Round, Valley Exit) at Uniform Recording in Philadelphia, and mastering done by Frank Arkwright at legendary Abbey Road Studios, London.
“We wanted to give people the perfect soundtrack for those lazy, hazy rainy days,” said Shane Gallagher, vocalist and founder of The Soft Spots about the motivation behind all of the hard work on their upcoming debut.
They will follow this release with a North American spring tour.
