Flip The Cushion Babe
CISTAMATIC sneaks into my library with a sentimental, high-energy alt-rock soundgarden.
Sometimes tracks go missing in the mass of my brain (ADHD, LOL) and 2 months later I found this gem.
"Soft Side" is something contradicting and yet at the same time completely relatable, it's a begging track - a track happily begging for comfort, love, and understanding. A wavey flower-filled distortion flows over the soundscape. There's a shoegaze alt-rock ultimatum - it's a request for a hug, but it's not broken, it's not on its last leg if anything it's confident - a confident demand.
We want someone to listen to heartbreaking tracks with or read poetry, but we also want someone who goes for a hike, a drink, or a party - we are contradicting and noisy things and this track is a layered beauty.
Flip The Cushion Babe and Hold Me.
