 Small Reactions

Police State video

Sofaburn Records

The first single from the upcoming album New Age Soul is set to a video of singer Scotty Hoffman driving down a city highway, graffiti in the background, which morphs into a performance in a vacant lot by the Atlanta band.

A post on the band's Facebook page explains, "I wrote this song in July 2017. I suppose it is a bit of a dystopian future kind of thing about creeping police presence in our lives, how some folks don’t realize until it’s too late and others folks have always been aware. How it’s physical and violent."

The music is halfway between jangle pop and shoegaze. The song is great, and the video adds to its dreaminess. While the band has been around since 2011 and recorded three previous albums, New Age Soul is their debut for Sofaburn.
