The Soft Cavalry - The Soft Cavalry
For Steve Clarke, The Soft Cavalry’s self-titled debut album is equally a labour of love and the first record he’s masterminded from start to finish, with invaluable contributions from his wife, Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, on co-vocals and spiritual/practical guidance and Steve’s brother Michael, who produced the record.
The band’s music is a particularly British brand of intense cinematic drama. Melodic and timeless, the album lands in the atmospheric dimensions between Pink Floyd, Talk Talk and Mansun. A record radiating midlife crisis but equally enormous elation; a helix of fear and hope, aching for resolution. A record Steve emphasises that he “needed” to make.
2LP on coloured vinyl (one yellow disc / one blue) with digital download code.
