[METAMORPHIC TECHNO] So they’ve abandoned Portland for L.A. like another electronic couple, Yacht. The difference is that Soft Metals started as a musical project and then went all lovey-dovey—a border many musicians would advise not crossing. But boundaries are not something that concern Soft Metals musically, either. Covering Throbbing Gristle’s 1979 pre-techno song “Hot on the Heels of Love,” Soft Metals might be pegged as an industrial duo, with those oh-so-of-the-moment waify vocals. But listen to “In the Air,” a single off its just-released sophomore record, Lenses, and you’ll hear happier arpeggiation and distant cousins of disco-pop melodies kept swirling by krautrock. They’re, like, soft and hard at the same time. Get it?
