Sodada is the Art Rock/Future Soul brainchild of Andy Casella and Hannah Rose. Drawing on a diverse range of influences, from modal jazz and punk rock to neo-soul and indie pop and many more in between, they seamlessly weave together intricate harmony, emotive vocals, and off-kilter-but-perpetually-in-the-pocket grooves to make you feel, to make you shake, to pull you into a dream state. Originally hailing from NYC, Sodada is now based out of Northampton, MA, joined by bassist Josh Hirst and drummer/producer Nate Mondschein.
"Sodada’s instrumentation gives a musical rollercoaster through the soaring chorus and mellow jazzy instrumentals while adding celestial layers through production and fine-tuned bass lines that support the songs overall dreamy ambiance. 'Sound of Your Troubles' provides a feeling of freedom and letting go of things that simply don’t serve you anymore, all while giving us a glimpse of the textured creativity and songwriting within Sodada."
What do you get when you combine Pink Floyd’s brand of jazzy progressive rock; the bittersweet melodies of The Beatles; soulful R&B a la Stevie Wonder; and a punk rock attitude? You find a band like Sodada, which succeeds in being much more than the sum of its parts.
