The first full-length from Lukas Mayo AKA Pickle darling was recently featured as Bandcamp's Album of the Day, and was featured in our Best Of 2018.

Of the clip, Lukas says: "The new video for 'Soft Cars' is nothing less than a stark portrayal of urban isolation and a brutal social commentary on the uneasy integration of AI into everyday life. We hope this confronting video challenges some preconceived notions..."
