“Heaven” by Softcult”

Softcult, make music that fuses riot grrrl and shoegaze in a way all their own, used to call attention to issues about gender equality, sexual assault, domestic violence, climate change, capitalism, and more. Their new single, “Heaven,” out today, a song about overcoming dysmorphia, it paints the picture of the idealistic utopian future that Mercedes and Phoenix Arn-Horn both hope will one day be reality.

“This song describes a world where everyone is accepted for who they are, where one’s background or identity does not dictate how they are perceived by society, where privilege and advantages are recognized and shared to build stronger communities, and a society that celebrates diversity, difference, and otherness as strengths.”

This year, Softcult released the breakout see you in the dark EP, a worthy contender amidst their already-stacked discography that’s generated excitement across the globe. They’ve been championed by artists like Hayley Williams and Oli Sykes, and more.
