From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars The Welsh band "Soft Hearted Scientists" makes a special form of music not similar with other bands here on this site. They have made three records and the last one "False lights" was released this year. I don't get information about the musicians on this site by the record lasts for 56 minutes and the art work is nice, a mystical picture with different occurrences. The members of the band are Nathan Hall, Dylan Line, Paul Jones and Michael Bailey.

I would call their music psychedelic folk pop, done in the same mood as a lot of music from the late 60s. I guess the music also has connections with some form of indie music. The links to the prog seems not to be especially strong, but still it's very interesting music.

The albums starts and ends with the sound of monks and in between there is a lot of fine and inspired music. Soft Hearted Scientists does very vocal oriented music and I love the voice style and the accent I hear. The music is full of instruments and very honest performenced. My favourite tracks are "Seeing" and "False Lights" which are perfect gems and a lot of the others also have a strong and enjoyable quality: "Seeing further", "Golgatha", "Song from the River", "Turn of tables" and "Panorama"(they're also very good).

I wouldn't say there is anything really inferior here and I can really recommend a listening of this record. Amongst the best ingredients is the vocals and the lyrics. Not very connected with other prog, this is interesting and good.
