AlternativeNation.net has been honored to release the exclusive premiere of Soda Pants’ debut single “Amarillo.” The folk-rock catchy anthem is filled with country-tinged vocal harmonies and is similar to the indie acoustic minimalism of acts such as Mumford & Sons or Noah and the Whale. “Amarillo” is the tenth track off their upcoming self-titled full-length album, which will be released on May 9th. You can check out the band’s bio and single below:
Soda Pants is a group of young, talented folk-rock virtuosos influenced by classic rock legends such as Paul Simon, The Band, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. The group formed at UCSD in March 2012 when musicians Erin Bower, Will Chapman, Mike Sierks, and Grady Kestler met and entered the Battle of the Bands. The folk rock four-piece began touring across the west coast, opening for eclectic acts such as Matt & Kim, Capital Cities, Portugal the Man, Andrew McMahon, the Mowglis, Youngblood Hawke, Run River North, and many more. Soda Pants was later given the San Diego Music Award for Best New Artist in 2013, opened for Conan O’ Brien during a visit to UCSD, and received airplay on 102.1 KPRI, 94.9 FM, and 88.1 KPFZ.
The group’s debut self-titled album will be released on May 9th, 2014. The LP was produced, recorded, and mixed by Jeff Berkley at Berkley Sound and mastered at Lurssen Mastering Studios by Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen.
