Soda Blonde is the new alt-pop musical venture emerging from the ashes of internationally-acclaimed Little Green Cars.
Featuring Dublin artists Faye O’Rourke, Adam O’Regan, Donagh Seaver O’Leary and Dylan Lynch, the band have quickly built up a loyal fan base who embrace the new sound, an enticing and dreamy alt-pop, seamlessly weaving together influences from Fleetwood Mac, Little Dragon and Kate Bush.
The band hit the ground running with the release of debut single ‘Swimming Through The Night’ – an ambitious track which establishes their authority within the genre and marks a promising future. The single is not only a triumphant anthem; it also showcases the stunning artistic talent of the collective who self-produced all aspects of their work including visual concepts.
Soda Blonde’s songs were written by lead singer Faye O’Rourke throughout her early 20s, where she honed in on her unique lyrical style of gritty kitchen-sink realism, evoking the tragic beauty of Karen Carpenter and the pop sensibilities of Annie Lennox. Throughout their repertoire, O’Rourke’s powerful and hauntingly unique vocal marries hard-hitting, atmospheric grooves to birth a new wave of pop that is both emotionally provoking and deeply satisfying.
The band have carved a distinct identity for themselves without compromising the musical integrity and charm that saw their previous project skyrocket to success. With a colleciton of brand new music waiting in the proverbial wings and an array of live shows expected throughout 2019 and 2020, the future looks bright for Soda Blonde!
