In one of the year's most left-field new launches, Zeal & Ardor’s Manuel Gagneux has started a Yacht Rock side-project, Soft Captain.
A duo featuring Gagneux alongside Basel, Switzerland-based experimental artist Samuel Tschudin, Soft Captain released the video for their debut single Too Long on June 10.
Announcing the project on social media, Gagneux writes, "I have also a Yacht Rock band now. Make of that what you will."

Manuel Gagneux also makes pop music under the name Birdmask, and has an electronic project called GEIZ.
