Formed in March 2023, Soft Top began as the alias and latest brainchild of songwriter Miles Goodall. Pooling together elements of Miles and the band's influences (Andy Shauf, Matt Maltese and Steely Dan to name a few) SoftTop pairs honest story-like lyrics with generous decorations from a seven piece band (Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboards, Clarinet, Cello, and Trumpet). SoftTop's music aims to pull at your heart strings, even if only very gently. The band of multi-instrumentalists have individually mastered their crafts across the other projects they feature in (Hutch, Ideal Living, Sad Dads, TINMAN, Slant, BobbySmiles) and are all songwriters themselves, providing a unique balance of written parts that truly serve each song.
As the project grows into 2024 a second single 'Runaway' will be released in February with Brighton based label Crafting Room Recordings, with plans for a release party at Folklore Rooms on February 19th. Runaway is a raw outcry with lyrics tipping the creative cap towards heartache and loss of love, acting as a pre-curser to the bands sonic departure into a concept album currently being recorded for release in autumn 2024. The album is based around life and events inside a strange, imaginary comatose world, inspired by a near death experience Miles had when an out of control car narrowly missed him in London.
