Our black hearts here at buffaBLOG tend to be drawn to the sincerity of heartbreak… Hence our latest feature, “Soap” from Richmond, VA-based act Drook. Frontwoman Liza Grishaeva laments the loss of a relationship overtop swimmy guitar textures and a washy drum presence in this reverbed-out slice of indie rock – her slightly-modulated vocals add the perfect amount of mystique, giving extra gravitas to lines like “I adore you.” About the song, she says:

“[‘Soap’ is a song about being] in the agony of the death throes of [my] relationship, now completely past the point of saving. It’s a final plea to something, anything out there to intervene and stop it all from falling apart; the sound of a fresh heartbreak.”
