Crack in the Road

Ernest Greene wishes that he’d written this song (actually, he does have a song called Far Away.). From the lush melodies, to the desperately infectious synths, Soft Lighting’s debut track Far Away cements them as a one to watch in 2012. Sure, the dream-pop genre is fairly overcrowded at the moment, but with more tracks to the quality of Far Away, and this Kansas City group are sure to stand out. All lazy Washed Out comparisons aside, the languid, shoegaze-esque drawl that Far Away possess makes it’s a simply sublime listen. Stream it below.
