Soft Cotton County “Looking for You Know Who”

It’s an EP. They’re good at those. The first track is “Look Out Ma, Papa’s Comin’ Home.” Soft Cotton County continue with their dreampop antics here. The title track is second and has pronounced guitar. It’s more of an indie rock approach than what we’ve seen from the band in the past. The synths, relegated to a backup role, do a fine job. The male vocals do surprisingly well. All in all, it reminds me of my favorite Bernard Sumner side project, Electronic, specifically “Getting Away With It.”
Next we are asked “Is This Your Kind of Country?” It also has more of a contemporary feel to it. The last track is “Here Comes the Stone & Steel.” It’s more reflective of the Soft Cotton County sound I’ve grown accustomed to.
This EP is clearly a coming out party for the title track and the sound associated with it, and I’m intrigued to see what happens next.
