Soft Coup was formed at the beginning of the pandemic by Hannah Rose and Eric Manuel. The band's name was created after the despicable rioting and ransacking that took place at the U.S. capitol building by a mob of Trump supporters in January 2021. With the country's underbelly now so viscerally and violently exposed, the worst aspects of our society could no longer be ignored. Similarly, Hannah spent much of the pandemic navigating painful shadow work through song-writing, examining her own trauma in an attempt to integrate and heal generational wounds.Hannah wrote each song on Soft Coup's upcoming album, "Womanifesta: Skank Stories," as a spell. Identifying as a powerful witch and ardent feminist, these songs not only represent a manifestation of what is to come, but are a celebration of feminine sexuality: its expression, its proclamation, and its reclamation.
