The Soft Moon shares new single & video ‘Become The Lies’

The Soft Moon shares new single & video ‘Become The Lies’
Salad Days

Album ‘Exister‘ due Sept 23rd via Sacred Bones Records.

The Soft Moon (aka multi instrumentalist Luis Vasquez) shares the video for latest single ‘Become The Lies’ the thrashing dark wave banger which appears on ‘Exister’, the powerful, vulnerably therapeutic new full-length album, due out September 23rd, 2022 on Sacred Bones Records. The ‘Become The Lies’ single release is accompanied by a perfectly stirring, expressive video starring Vasquez, directed by Wiggy & Nick Blanco. Single follows the June release of jolting lead single ‘Him’ which came with the album’s announcement and features a collaboration with fish narc, who appears with Vasquez in the turbulent video for the track, also directed by Wiggy & Nick Blanco. Speaking about the track, The Soft Moon said “I had an identity crisis after discovering dark secrets about my family’s past. This happened while I was writing the album and it destroyed me. ‘Become The Lies’ expresses how everything I thought I knew about my life was untrue. Lies, shame and guilt have been a recurring theme in my music. I explored it in ‘Criminal’, but during the writing process of ‘Exister’ I became more self-aware and finally understood that I was never the liar in the story. I wanted to dance in the video to contrast with the lack of control I felt over my life in that moment. It’s my way of shaking off the bad stuff. It’s also an escape from the seriousness of this song.”
