Italian alt/electro-rock duo Soaware unveil their video, “Puddle,” ahead of their debut self-titled album, due out July 12, with a premiere on Pure Grain Audio. “[Puddle] is a great example of the mix of emotions you’ll hear on Soaware’s debut.” (Pure Grain Audio) “SOAWARE are helping people win over their own demons.” (Metal Nexus)The song details the woes of unrequited love and the pains of falling in love. Combining eclectic rock and electronic elements, Soaware has created an immersive piece that echoes the intense emotions of its writers.
“We Shall Be One” is about struggling with feeling separated and lonely while being aware one is not truly alone in the world. The emotional ethos of the lyrics are truly captured in brooding vocals which loom over an ethereal combination of guitars, bass, drums, and synths. The haunting tones of “We Shall Be One” leave the listener to ponder their own relationship with the world.
Soaware’s founders and central songwriters, Damiano Bessi and Emanuele Grazioli, bring a groundbreaking alternative rock from Italy to the rest of the world. They first met in 1999 while playing in the band Mad Cobol, later splitting to perform with separate groups. In 2015, the two reunited to form Soaware, retreating to a basement studio to write new music. The fruits of Soaware’s three-year (2015-2018) labour have culminated in their forthcoming self-titled album. Soaware will include 11 tracks which feature the pair on songwriting, instrumentals, and production. Focusing on sheer emotions rather than life experiences, Soaware draw upon the spirits of 90s grunge and 80s synth pop to create dark atmospheres with electronic rock/metal edges.
“We Shall Be One” is available for streaming now on all digital platforms. Be sure to keep an eye out for more material from Soaware and the new album.
