Soft Double – “Silver City Star”


The smooth rock jam “Silver City Star” is a delectable fusing of funk, R&B, and city-pop from Berlin-based duo Soft Double. Comprising a member from New York and another from Southwest Germany, Soft Double met at art school in Weimar, Germany, with their fruitful collaborative nature showing with the stellar “Silver City Star.”

Tender guitar caressing and soulful, late-night synths drive to a suave title-touting vocal — “silver city star, shining from afar.” Prancing synths craft a hypnotic spell during the “just an illusion,” vocal hook, punctuating the chorus with a brief yet satiating glow. Its lyrics also engrossing with musings on lost connections and opportunities, “Silver City Star” is a thoroughly stylish and melodically catching success from Soft Double.

The track comes via Soft Double’s new EP, Loose Plans, streaming below:
