San Francisco based dark wave post-apocalyptic experimentalist Luis Vasquez aka The Soft Moon has announced he will release his brand new album titled 'Deeper' in March.
This is Vasquez third studio album as Soft Moon, it follows his 2012's record Zeros, and was forged in "total solitude" in Venice and Berlin, miles from his usual Oakland base of operations. With producer Maurizio Baggio, Vasquez looked to create his most personal and emotional record yet with a renewed focus on songwriting.
According to press release, "The album is an inward-looking representation of a new man as he processes the relentless undercurrent of his internal battles with suicide, vulnerability, and healing."
During the writing process, Vasquez pushed himself to discover the reality and nightmare of living with yourself, in entirely foreign surroundings with nothing and no one to fall back on. Stepping back and letting inspiration fall where it may, Vasquez only had one goal in mind for this album: to pen his most emotional record yet. Between frequent visits to Berlin, Vasquez retreated to Venice’s Hate Studios, located in the mountains near electronic guru and spiritual anchor Giorgio Moroder’s hometown.
Deeper will be out on March 31 via Captured Tracks. Pre-order your copy here, and have a listen to the album's track "Black", below.
