The one-man project of Luis Vasquez, The Soft Moon gives the darkly hypnotic sounds of SuicideJoy DivisionBauhaus, and Krautrock new life with a stripped-down approach. Vasquez is also inspired by his Afro-Cuban heritage and the wide-open spaces of the Mojave Desert where he was raised.

The Soft Moon’s self-titled debut album was released in late 2010 by Captured Tracks and was praised by critics and emulated contemporaries. Releasing three more albums in between, 2022 will see the release of fifth studio album Exister, which will be a powerful, vulnerable post-punk industrial masterpiece.
