Were The Cure to return from the bat-ridden boondocks of Robert Smith’s backcombed, haywire barnet with anything as convincing and downright compelling as Current, well, it’d make for a fairly irrefutable advance on 4:13 Dream, really. We’d be in densely eyelined raptures though astonishingly, this from Portland, Oregon post-punks Soft Kill is little other than a lowly B-side to a forthcoming heavyweight 7″ single release expected January 22nd via Handmade Birds. Relentless as that repeatedly cited “river that leads home”, Current is as chilling as a chiropteran flock flurrying in a grimy blur out from Love Comes Close, Cold Cave’s darkwave hovel, and it’s one we’re to be found holed up in for the foreseeable.
