Many music genres are taking us back to the Golden Days of rock, pop or punk with their own modern twist. The Soft White Sixties takes this trend and adds genuine emotion to create memorable tracks with fabulous vintage influences.

“It kind of changes who I’m into, I go through phases. James Brown, Willie Nelson, The Beatles; it’s hard to say what’s pertinent or not, because I’m always changing — no, adding — things to create the whole,” Octavio Genera, The Soft White Sixties’ singer, said. “The band’s influences, though, would really be T. Rex, The Stones, early 70’s punk and rock and roll.”

The band takes pride in making music with a genuine aesthetic that encourages vintage practices, such as recording everything together live in the studio. They’re currently working toward the completion of their next album.

“Our sound, in part, came from a large involvement from the producer. Having Elijah in the room with us was really inspiring and he pushed us to our creative limits,” Genera said.

Recording together in the studio, like many of the bands we consider classics today, created a sense of togetherness as well as the intense wall of sound behind the lyrics to many of their tracks — which is something The Soft White Sixties are excited to share with everyone as they continue their tour.

Those going to the concert can expect an exciting combination of The Soft White Sixties’ older work and some of the new stuff the band has been working on, as well as the infectious energy of the band itself.

The Soft White Sixties are playing Kilby Court on Nov. 1 with Dan Luke and The Raid. Tickets are $10/ADV, $12/DOS and can be purchased at: Concert-goers must be 21 or over and the concert will start at 7 p.m.
