Following the release of his third studio album ‘Deeper’ earlier this year via Captured Tracks, The Soft Moon has unveiled a new video for album standout track ‘Wrong’  & announced an extensive tour, including shows UK dates in October with shows in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Bristol, Brighton, and their first ever show in Ireland.

Created by New Orleans-based artist 9RIS 9RIS, the video for ‘Wrong’ is a kaleidoscopic venture of bright lights, trippy colours & disorientating screenshots allowing The Soft Moon’s industrial, electronic sounds to take centre stage.  The idea of making a video for this song came about when 9RIS 9RIS DJ'd at The Soft Moon show in New Orleans this past May. The DJ set also included his unique visuals. Impressed by his style, Luis Vasquez approached 9RIS 9RIS where they discussed his concept and direction for a visual representation of 'Wrong'.

The track was co-written with Maurizio Baggio, who recorded and produced ‘Deeper’.


Watch video for ‘Wrong’ below!


The voice of The Soft Moon has never been more clear and honest than it is on this record. With eerie, immersive tracks like the dogged "Far" and slow, beautifully melancholic "Wasting" (the first track written for Deeper), the album is a penetrating portrait of Vasquez as he wrestles thoughts of suicide, vulnerability and what it means to heal. By facing the most hopeless parts of himself without illusion and putting his past demons to bed, the creation of Deeper was an intense personal exploration of existence for Vasquez -- old wounds were forcibly opened, deep anger and paranoia were manipulated into song -- and he did not emerge unchanged. Deeper may have delivered Vasquez back to the waking world, but it willingly drags us further into The Soft Moon's dark, euphonic universe once more.
