Dublin alt-pop band Soda Blonde have announced the release of their new EP titled isolation – content, due for release on May 29, coming on the back of their debut EP Terrible Hands which was released at the end of last year. Their announcement comes with the release of a new single titled “June” along with some visuals.
Formed last year, Soda Blonde emerged out of the acclaimed band Little Green Cars, who had their debut album top the Irish charts, and who were also a ‘BBC Sound Of’ nominee. Faye O’Rourke, Adam O’Regan, Dylan Lynch, and Donagh Seaver O’Leary came out of that band to form their new project Soda Blonde.
As the name suggests, their forthcoming EP isolation – content was created out of a need to keep making music whilst in lockdown, with the group unearthing a new process of working that enabled them to put together this project.
According to the band, “The alchemy of this project is simple: after the initial sample is taken from me, it’s then sent off to the lab where Adam can dissect and analyse what the fuck is going on. He makes a few suggestions about structure and then lays down the foundational ‘vibe’ for the track.
It’s then sent off to the rhythm section for further critical analysis and expansion before making its way back to me to hear the first draft of the song. Not long into early stages of the project the brief abruptly changed.
It shifted from the previous pursuit of sanity and time consumption into something immensely more important. Our usual work ethic of meticulousness and devotion to every detail was reinstated“.
