Soft Swells "Be Young"
Be Young (Bushwick Recordings), the new album from Tim Williams’ Soft Swells, is a cathartic collection of poptastic rock tunes. You know, dudes and guitars. This time around, Tim was reacting to “feeling locked into life choices we all clearly have the ability to change. So often the easier decision is to let hopelessness blanket you into submission, when in fact, the bottom is the best place to make a real change.” So what does that mean for the listener? It means that somewhere between the rebellious strains of Tom Petty, the stadium quirk of early Weezer, and the sheen of Soft Swells (what a trick! they sound like themselves!) we have Be Young. Why not be young yourself (it works!) and check out the first single, “Reins.”
