Dubliners Soda Blonde share upcoming tours dates, as well as announcing their debut album with the release of lead single ‘Small Talk’.
Now that the world of touring is beginning to return, Soda Blonde are wasting no time in getting back onto the stage, sharing dates for both their Ireland and UK shows in support of their debut album “Small Talk”.
Never being one to mince their own words, the Irish group’s brutally honest pop makes a bold return on their new single. Cascading through the darker memories of Faye O’Rourke, ‘Small Talk’ pushes its way to the top of the table, delivering sad-banger pop anchored in the frontwoman’s inner struggles.
“With feminism on one shoulder and trans-generational Catholic guilt on the other, it’s hard to find your way as an Irish woman. The truth is, I’ve found that process of deprogramming myself extremely hard, and now I lie somewhere between the past and future”.
Speaking about the upcoming album, Faye O’Rourke explained: “To put it simply, Small Talk is about life in our 20’s. 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”.
“Small Talk” is out July 9th via Velveteen Records.
