Listen to Softcult’s new single, Shortest Fuse

Softcult have unveiled an important and powerful new single,
Shortest Fuse.

Following recent singles Heaven and Haunt You Still, the duo
– Mercedes and Phoenix Arn-Horn – address the struggles of the world
we live and work in with their latest musical effort, explaining that, “Capitalism seems to
be designed to keep underprivileged people toiling in a never ending cycle of
debt and poverty where their labour is underpaid in order to profit their
employers. The benefits of capitalism are rarely equally distributed, accruing
wealth to a very small percentage of the population.

“Built on the notion of
greed, benefitting only by paying workers less than what their labour is worth,
it’s difficult to not become disenfranchised with capitalism when you exist in
this reality and see no end in sight. We can’t become complicit in a system
that is designed to keep us down.”
