The Ophelias - "Soft and Tame"

The latest from The Ophelias lives in the world between indie rock and indie folk, which is one of our favorite places. "Soft and Tame" is a stunning ballad that might lean more into folk based on the heavy use of violin courtesy of Andrea Guttman Fuentes, but overall it might be more on the singer-songwriter side of indie rock. "Soft and Tame" just builds and builds into a completely epic crescendo, which would be where most bands end a song, but The Ophelias keep going into an even deeper level of perfection. This is a highly emotional song, and has the power to completely floor the listener.
