Soda Blonde Announce debut EP and Second Dublin Show

Thursday 24th, 2019


The Dublin alt - pop band Soda Blonde have announced their debut EP “ Terrible Hands ” for release on Nov 8 th 2019. The EP will be released on the first date o f the band’s new 9 - date Irish and UK Tour in Nov and Dec that begins in Waterford, before the band visit Cork, Galway, London and Manchester (their first ever UK shows), Limerick, Belfast and two hometown shows at Whelan’s Dublin . The second Dublin date has just been announced today and tickets are on - sale now.
Fronted by singer - songstress Faye O’Rourke, Adam O’Regan (keys and guitar), Donagh Seaver O’Leary (bass) and Dylan Lynch (drums), who all emerged from the ashes of internationally acclaimed band Little Green Cars. The transformation is lead by a distinctive new sound which seamlessly weaves together influences from Fleetwood Mac, Little Dragon , Bat For Lashes and Kate Bush whilst still keeping the integrity and unique charm that sky - rocketed Little Green Cars’ success. The result... enticing, dreamy alternative - pop music. Soda Blonde hit the ground running with the ir first single ‘Swimming Through The Night’ .
This new collection of songs titled as the Terrible Hands – EP (self produced by the band themselves at their Dublin HQ) were all written by lead singer Faye O’Rourke throughout her early 20s where she honed in on her unique lyrical style that has been called gritty kitchen - sink realism, evoking the tragic beauty of Karen Carpenter and the pop sensibilities of Annie Lennox.
”In light of the times we live in 'Terrible Hands' was chosen as the title track for our EP. It touches on failed relationships, personal shortcomings and self discovery. It was written over a hugely transitional period for all of us and was nothing but joy to create. We’ve been busy preparing the new material for the last few months and are so excited to get to share them to a live audience.” – Faye O’Rourke
