Sometimes you have to change direction to progress, but change isn't always as big as it feels. Following on from the retro-leaning dance pop of their self-titled EP, New York vocalist/producer duo Soft Lit return with a new single titled 'U Up'. Released as part of Godmode Americas's ongoing Faculty Studies series, 'U Up' sees Tara Chacón stretching her optimistically toned singing voice over some decidedly bubbly synthesiser acrobatics and a fast-paced kick and handclap-heavy beatscape. Strident and driving, it's an accomplished expansion of what Soft Lit's soundworld is and might be. You can purchase 'U Up' on iTunes.
