DIGITAL AVATAR BAND SODA STATE RETURN FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION WITH BREEZY POP SINGLE
‘WAY TO GO’
SODA STATE – ‘WAY TO GO’
Lyrically, sonically and visually Soda State are on a mission to take you away from the world around you; they want you to surrender yourself to the moment and come with them to ‘The Soda State Of Mind’. Each time they release a single they open a door to this world and with their first two singles ‘The Look’ and ‘Midnight’ they showed us a glimpse into their utopian paradise. Setting their standard with layered 80’s synths, kicking back beats and euphoric vocals epitomising their sound.
Now with the latest single, ‘Way To Go’ they continue the expansion of their sound, delivering unadulterated breezy synth pop, simultaneously contemporary and retro, beautifully constructed and designed to make you smile. Its builds in breathy, dreamy and super hooky vocals over a pop dance backdrop, primed for summer and sunnier days, working on the radio as well as your favorite streaming playlists.
The band come equipped with a fascinating story. Back in 2019, M and Tracie are in their garage recording studio in London. Using their laptops, classic analogue synths and an array of gadgets they’ve wired themselves, they stumble on a sound, a combination of 0’s and 1’s in digital code that unexpectedly opens an interdimensional portal, transporting them to an alternate reality: the Soda State.
Transformed into digital versions of themselves, M and Tracie find themselves in a utopian world. Euphoric and intoxicating feeling both nostalgic and brand new – like nothing they’ve experienced before. Immediately hooked, they vow never to leave this paradise.
Before long, they find themselves tumbling through the portal again, away from Soda State. Re-entering the human world in their digital forms. Hypnotized by what they’ve experienced, they can’t rest until they find their way back. Now getting to grips with life in the real world as digital avatars, the friends are on a musical journey to rediscover the sound that will open the portal once more.
Soda State come to us with fascinating and highly creative imagery, they are also lovers of all things retro, think video games, fashion and of course, music. The single release comes equipped with an original video and an alternative ‘Club Soda’ Mix primed for when we finally return to the dancefloor.
Soda State’s ‘Way To Go’ is out now on Potion Records.
