Softcult have shared a personal and important new single, Gaslight.
Taken from the Canadian duo's upcoming Year Of The Snake EP, it hears the pair – Phoenix and Mercedes Arn-Horn – explore abusive relationships, and acts as a warning call.
"We wrote this song about gaslighting and how it really messes with your head and your perception of reality," says Mercedes. "Being in a relationship that constantly makes you question your decisions and actions, your feelings and emotions, even your soundness of mind. It’s a tactic that many abusers and groomers will use to tear down your defences and make you easier to manipulate.
"We wanted to raise awareness of this manipulation technique so that whoever hears the song will be able to recognise those red flags if they encounter that kind of behaviour."
Year Of The Snake is due out on February 4 via Easy Life. Watch the video for Gaslight below:
