On their new single “Goodbye Again”, Philadelphia’s The Soft Spots create a fuzzy sort of indie rock that links together The Smiths, The Cure, and adds their own unique take through the presence of a synth and guitar-heavy backdrop. The heavenly vocals provide the perfect counterpoint to the insistent drum beat and sizzling guitar work that comprise the backdrop for the song. Distinct movements within Goodbye Again keep listener interest high as the band builds off of The Anniversary and MGMT. Goodbye Again’s bass line deserves additional kudos as it represents the cornerstone upon which everything else is built.
