New Single and Clip Soft Power
Tropical Fu*k Storm return from their Homeric American adventure touring with mates King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard and Band Of Horses, with a gift…. Soft Power, the second instalment from their 7" double sided limited-edition release extravaganza!
a persuasive approach to international relations, typically involving the use of economic or cultural influence.
Swaggering in with two of the most ominous opening lines of recent times…"Hey hold your fire man don't shoot / Here comes the umpa lumpa with the nukes", Soft Power is a breakup song. The accusers, The People of Earth, are finally kicking their abusive ex-lover (the USA) to the curb: "Everyone here gets the joke / Everybody except you."
Tropical Fu*k Storm ride in to articulate with devastating accuracy the collective dread and repugnance of this moment in history.
Brilliantly paired with B-side Lose The Baby, a cover of the iconic Lost Animal classic penned by Jarrod Quarrell, the new single by Tropical Fu*k Storm is a collectible insta-classic and a glimpse at the band's forthcoming debut album, that is being recorded with Aaron Cupples this month, and due 2018.
As with all of the 7 inches Montréal artist Joe Becker has provided the original cover art.
Tropical Fu*k Storm is Gareth Liddiard, Fiona Kitschin, Lauren Hammel and Erica Dunn.
The Soft Power film clip was filmed by Adam Donovan in the Terrorplex, Little Rock, Arkansas, and edited by Defero Productions. Watch here.
