The Soft Moon

Raised under the burning sun of the Mojave desert, Luis Vasquez channels both his punk upbringing and Afro-Cuban heritage to sculpt decidedly dystopian soundscapes for a new generation of torn romantics. It's a record set somewhere in the near post-apocalypse where technology enchants as much as it destroys. The Soft Moon is a San Francisco based neo-post-punk band composed of Luis Vasquez (singer/songwriter/guitar/synthesizers), Justin Anastasi (bass), Damon Way (synthesizers) and Ron Robinson (visuals).

Keven Tecon joined the band as a drummer in early 2012.

The Soft Moon has taken cues from early synthpunk/post-punk bands such as Chrome, Suicide, Danse Society and The Units. The Soft Moon was founded by Luis Vasquez as a solo project in 2009. He released two singles, "Breathe the Fire" and "Parallels", while working on his debut Self Titled LP. Prior to the release of the LP, Vasquez directed his energy into building a band around his project with the aim to deliver a full sensory experience within the context of live performance.
