Raggedcast News: Soda Blonde drop another track ahead of highly anticipated album

Soda Blonde have released another fantastic new single from their upcoming debut album ahead of its highly anticipated drop. 

‘Holy Roses’ is the latest track that we get to enjoy from the band’s upcoming album ‘Small Talk’. 

It’s a cracking track and another showcase of the band's ability to create a nostalgic yet modern, pop classic. 

Out July 9th via Velveteen Records, ‘Small Talk’ sees the group reflecting on their twenty-something experiences with refreshingly honest transparency. 

“To put it simply, ‘Small Talk’ is about life in our 20’s,” says Faye O’Rourke, Soda Blonde’s enigmatic front woman. “Every part of us is in here, both subliminally and literally. Lyrically, this record is like a collection of my flaws and insecurities. They’re lingering awkwardly by the bar at a crowded social gathering, waiting to integrate with the wider world”.  

The third single from the album ‘Holy Roses' is hot off the heels of singles ‘Small Talk’ and 'In The Heat Of The Night' – and is available to stream on Spotify.  

About 'Holy Roses' Faye says: "So many of us use rejection as fuel to justify stagnancy or living in the past. Holy Roses provides me with some closureandI feel it’s one of the most important tracks on the album. I am directly addressing the people in my past who have hurt me in this song. The Rose is symbolic of war and the fleetingness of life and death. It also represents the fall of Christianity, whichI compare not only to our country’s dying Catholic status but to the oppression I felt throughout my own personal and work life. ‘Holy Roses’ is the moment of reckoning for me, in all respects. I’m letting go of the people who have hurt me and my old way of living.” 

Be sure to check out ‘Holy Roses’ and keep an eye out for the album which drops next month!
