Soda Shop - New Music "Introducing"

Facebook /

I'm continuing my recent trend of nostalgic, luscious indie-pop with the new band of Maria Usbeck, known to me as the lead singer in previously blogged Selebrities Maria's side-project Soda Shop moves away from the synth based disco-noir and into instantly listenable, classic pop territory.

Alongside Drew Driver (of Horse Shoes a group I'm not yet familiar with) Soda Shop have a few tracks to listen to on their bandcamp / soundcloud page and following up a vinyl release in January they are soon to release their as yet unannounced debut EP.

The preview track is the perfect introduction to the duo, "Longing" is a playfully melodic, saccharine-sweet pop song that's just about as dreamy and easy going as possible. It Sparkles and shines with a beautiful bubbling guitar melody, a care-free number that'd be perfect for a little boogie on the dance-floor to. Probably with the girl you quite like but haven't had the guts to ask out, perhaps.

Previous single "Farewell" similarly pays homage to the 50's / 60's girl pop sound with gorgeous guitar melodies jangling, tambourine taps and glockenspiel twangs, effortlessly cool and delicious. 'Farewell' is available to order on 7" here.
