With an opening riff that immediately beckons you to The Cure’s “Close To Me”, California’s Soft People are back with a new single. Where last year’s “The Absolute Boy” was more of a somber tune, “Tender” has quite the spring in it’s step. The sentiment “It’s hard to remember to try to find a way to be tender” is one we should all should be reciting. The mantra should follow every snarky, anonymous comment in social media!
Pat Spurgeon (of Rogue Wave fame) has turned this husband-husband duo into a threesome. No word on whether this is a temporary development or if this is just a guest spot. “Tender” is out now on all of your favourite streaming devices.
