Softcult, the project of Canadian twin siblings Mercedes and Phoenix Arn-Horn, have dropped the new single ‘Dress’. It’s lifted from their upcoming EP see you in the dark, which is out March 24, and arrives with a video directed by Merces and starring PONY’s Sam Bielanski. Check it out below.
“This song is about consent; it’s about saying ‘no’ and having it happen to you anyway,” Mercedes explained in a press release. “It’s about being followed while walking alone at night or being cornered in a bar when we’re just trying to have a night out with our friends. It’s about the lingering fear and trauma that haunts us long after these experiences have happened. It’s about how these experiences make us feel powerless and change the way we see ourselves.”
