Persona Grata ― 2024 ― 00 000

Soft Riot

BIO EN -

Soft Riot is JJD, a former Vancouverite now residing in the Glasgow UK who has clocked in over twenty
five years of musical output in various bands and projects, including half a dozen art-damaged punk and
hardcore bands as well as Vancouver-based, first-wave, post-punk revivalists Radio Berlin (1998-2005).
Moving from Vancouver to London UK in the late 2000s, Soft Riot came into full being.
Using an arsenal of synthesizers and effects, Soft Riot’s sound is an amalgamation of JJD’s personal
experience with music, containing elements of synthesiser-based film soundtracks, romantic italo-style
flourishes, throbbing arpeggiations and angular, psychedelic synth-pop all tied together with an underlying
tension. It is a soundscape that narrates the listener through today’s fractured, excessive landscape with
hints of black humour.
No. is the latest, tenth album by Soft Riot, released August 2023 on Possession Records (UK) and Wave
Tension Records (NL). Renowned in the European underground synth/post-punk scene for his signature
sound, No. showcases Jack Duckworth’s unique and auteur approach to the “darkwave/synth” genre.
