Soft Faith from the USA have delivered a real synth pop treat with their song "New Light", which will burn itself into the ears of the fans. This track is a tribute to the genre and offers a masterful realisation of the synth pop sound without reinventing the wheel. But sometimes you just don't need a revolution, you just need a perfect execution, and that's exactly what we get here.
The song begins with an extremely crisp beat that inevitably encourages you to bob along. Immediately noticeable is the fat bass line, which forms a solid foundation for the entire piece. But the real highlight is the vocals, which offer a successful mixture of gloom and pop appeal. You can literally lose yourself in these melodious sounds.
Particularly remarkable is the rousing bridge, which starts at 01:30 minutes and carries a hint of "The Cure". Here Aaron Thompson shows an impressive vocal presence as he delivers the lines "Please, get down on your knees" with passion. Even for those who normally don't like guitar music (like me), this track is an absolute highlight.
