10 stripped back tracks/videos recorded while touring. Filmed over the course of four years around the world: in Paris, Tokyo, Turkey, Brooklyn, Dallas, Otto, Brighton, Frome and Los Angeles, it features intimate unplugged performances of songs taken from their back catalogue.
The sessions are a little rough around the edges, we recorded them on the fly and in between having to drive to the next show, but imperfections have a charm and this series of musical postcards will hopefully transport you to the exact time and place they were captured.
Soft Sounds will see a stripped-down video (and track on streaming services) posted every Thursday until 23rd July, culminating in an exclusive new song recorded from our homes in Brighton and Frome later this year.
The end result will be that all 10 tracks will be pressed onto vinyl, alongside a set of hand-numbered prints that you can only pre-order between 21st May and the 23rd July. After that date that will be the number pressed and will never be repressed again!

Certainly a controversial direction for the band, but this album ultimately rests as my favorite from TTNG. The technical mastery of their previous albums is still present here along with some very thought provoking and philosophical lyrics. I may not always agree with the lyrical messaging, but this is an album which rewards careful listening. Syobnaf
