soft hearted scientists
Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World*
YOU ARE THE COSMOS
The Soft Hearted Scientists' music is probably suitable for most drug experiences, very power‐ful and psychedelic with a constant feeling of togetherness.
There is a nice mixture of instrumental and vocal tracks drenched in folky sonics. They take the refreshing route of pushing their psychedelic rock influences into pop music. “Any band who sings about caterpillars, the Brecon Beacons and monsters called Yongy Bongy Bo risk, being so quirky they'd leave you reaching for a Misty's Big Adventure CD for respite. Yes the first album proper from these acoustic folk oddballs might suggest its makers bed down in a Glasto tepee every night, tucked in by a woodlan pixie, but to dismiss Cardiff's SHS as quirk over substance would be idiotic. Over Beta Band‐ish acoustics and cloudy chants , electro‐squiggles and instruments we couldn't even begin to name jiggle and hop, all neon highlighting the campfire brilliance of SHS's choruses. Yongy Bongy who?” Jamie Fullerton, NME, 2007.
