Twins, Mercedes(she/her) and Phoenix Arn-Horn(they/them) are the multi-faceted and resourceful minds behind the social commentary project that is Softcult. The duo impressively create nearly all of the content surrounding the band themselves. From songwriting, production and engineering, to visuals and music videos…the two of them together are manufacturing it all. This allows them complete control of their vision and execution.
The lyricism and overall message of the band is politically charged. With songs like “Someone2Me” addressing the dangers of incel culture and “Dress” focusing on the imperilment of sexual assault, Softcult is pioneering the resurgence of the Riot grrrl movement. They seamlessly combine punk, shoegaze, grunge and dream-pop to create a unique and alluring sound. Listen to the new EP now and grab tickets to their upcoming shows here.
