In an abandoned hospital ward in 2014, Jana and Theresa penned the opening sketches of an EP that would eventually become Soft Grid’s debut Stingrays (Cassette, Twaague, 2015, sold-out). The resulting layered synths, reminiscent of krauty psychedelia, were supported for early live dates by drummer and producer Sam. The sound subsequently developed into Soft Grid as it is today - its reinforced rhythm section, and highly effected vocal aesthetic pouring eclectic references through an extended live show.
After extensive performing in early 2016, Soft Grid returned to the studio to record the live show they’ve been playing for the last months, a 37 minute long navigation through big hooks, extended ambience and heavy synth breakdowns.
