Last year, Bay Area punks Never Young put out a trio of tracks called NY Singles. Just about one year later, they've got another EP for us — Singles Tape II: SoftBank, which is out October 14 on Father/Daughter Records. Without losing their edge, Never Young have embraced some pop melodics, which make new songs like the indignant "Soap," premiering today, irresistible.
When The FADER asked about the track over email, Never Young wrote, "Soap can remove the things we wish we couldn't see, but can't promise they won't return. This song is about a type of dread that feels uniquely American; the specter of imminent violence and the way it's twisted to scare people." Listen below.
