Aus dem Urschaum von Improvrock und Synthiepop schälen sich gleich zwei Berliner Göttinnen des leidenschaftlichen Krachs: Jana Sotzko und Theresa Stroetges, letztere auch bekannt als Golden Diskó Ship, erstere von der Band Drop Out Patrol. Zusammen mit dem Schlagzeuger Sam Slater sind sie Soft Grid und entfesseln auf ihrem Langspieldebüt Synthiestürme, Gitarrengewitter, Geigenentgleisungen sowie Stimmband- und Kehlkopforgien.
— DIE ZEIT
Was dieses Trio hier als Debüt abliefert ist in jeder Hinsicht famos. Die Verbindung von Elektronik und Post-/Psychrock ist grandios, die Instrumentierung sehr speziell und erstklassig. Dazu der ungewöhnliche, aber erstklassige Gesang. Wenn dieses Album eine Schwäche hat, dann die, dass es nur 32 Minuten dauert. Hammeralbum!

SOFT GRID

Noise Rock / Ambient / Electronic / Experimental Pop

The Berlin-based trio Soft Grid was started in 2014 by Jana Sotzko (Dropout Patrol) and Theresa Stroetges (Golden Diskó Ship), who had previously been working together in the improvisation project Epiphany Now. The duo recorded their first EP "Stringrays" in an abandoned hospital ward in a children's hospital in Potsdam in summer 2015. Shortly after British drummer and producer Sam Slater joined. Since then, the three-piece has shared stages around Germany alongside such diverse acts as Des Ark, Milemarker, Messer, or even Tolouse Low Trax. With their debut LP "Corolla" (2016), Soft Grid captures the explosive energy of its celebrated live shows. Just like their gigs – which have all members wandering around to take over duties on synthesizers, bass, guitar, viola, and microphones – "Corolla" is a carefully mapped out, compositional whole, recorded live over two days in Salon Berlin by Sylvain Livache. It showcases the trio’s taste for ventures into the realms of extreme acoustic sounds and electronic textures as well as their knack for catchy hooks and driving rhythms. Even amidst the heaviest synth breakdowns, there’s something joyful to cling to. Soft Grid make music that is continuously twisting and shifting, which immerses itself in the steady flow of sonic events without losing focus.
