The Soft White Sixties Bring Back The Eighties

19 Jan

They may be called The Soft White Sixties, but their sound is anything but.

“When This All Started” seems like a direct response to the absence of provocative but tasteful tracks in the modern age of pop music. It brings listeners back to the eighties powerhouse INXS who mastered the genre.

Like their predecessors, The Soft White Sixties take slow jamming and alternative rock seriously. The hazy, and dangerous instrumentals compliment lead singer Octavio Genera’s sensual and gritty vocals which alarmingly sound as if Michael Hutchence has come back from the dead.

It’s sleek and edgy just like INXS’ “Need You Tonight,” in fact, “When This All Started” could easily fit on a Best of INXS album without anyone questioning its authenticity.

Yes. It’s just that good.
