Melbourne duo Sodastream are synonymous with lush, lyrical brushstrokes coupled with textured and often haunting sounds. Together they leave tender but deep cuts in the listener’s psyche, lingering long after the music dissipates. The duo won over fans as prominent as radio legend John Peel and music icon Moby, who named their 1997 EP Practical Footwear Single of the Week in Melody Maker.
Carting their respective guitar and upright bass around the globe, Karl and Pete played with Pavement, Yo La Tengo, Smog, Low, and The Mountain Goats. Belle & Sebastian personally invited them to play at the first ever All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, and even the notoriously picky Pitchfork praised their “subtle melancholy.” Sodastream always ran deeper than most when it came to emotionally complex storytelling, and their new material thrives just as much on the play between darkness and light.
