Softcult

Sotfcult is the project of Phoenix and Mercedes Arn Horn, Ontario-based twins who spent their formative years playing shows in their local town of Kitchener before branching out across the North American circuit, a experience of which, for two young women in an often male-dominated industry, informed much of their new project’s manifesto as well as sound.

As something of a reaction, Softcult is a call to arms against the misogyny and sexism they encountered and often held their tongues on, with the music they’re now creating acting as unabashed, outspoken and, most importantly, inclusive feminist anthems inspired by their Riot Grrrl heroes.
