Your New Favorite Band: Soda Bomb
By Sarah Waxberg.
Genre: Lo-fi/ Punk
Hometown: Long Island, NY
How I discovered them: They followed me on Tumblr, and I immediately felt the need to listen to them when I saw that they’re from my hometown.
Description: While listening to the song “i wanna die”, my first thought about Soda Bomb was that they belonged on the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World soundtrack. They have a very distinct sound that differs from most punk. It’s as if Wavves and MGMT joined forces with Nirvana to make a punk band. Despite the name of the depressing track name, their music isn’t “cry yourself to sleep” so much as angsty punk. The sound is charmingly homemade; I really felt like I was sitting in their garage listening to them play.
For Fans Of: Wavves, Smashing Pumpkins, CM Punk, Metric
Accomplishments: Their EP Hooligan is available for free download on their Bandcamp and they recently played at SUNY Purchase! Keep an eye on their Tumblr and Facebook for upcoming shows and more great music to come.

Soda Bomb // Booger: The Mini EP
Yeah, that’s a giant booger with a face. Soda Bomb knew exactly what they were doing when they named this EP after bodily refuse and made the cover a giant glob of snot with a face. These Long Island punks decided to have fun and drop these two tracks on the world for no other reason than they just wanted to. And they also wanted to call it Booger.
Now I know that so many people out there get their undies in a bundle when people compare one band to another but I don’t really give a hoot. These guys will forever remind me of Your Favorite Weapon era Brand New and there is nothing I can do about that. So while many people are cringing and pretending that they didn’t listen to that album in high school I am rejoicing because I just listened to that album last week and Soda Bomb hits that same sweet spot. And that just makes me smile.

Since I’m terrible at writing these things I’m just going to write a list of things
that people who might like Soda Bomb might like:
lo-fi stuff, listening to (the) Pixies, loud shit, being punk, hanging out with your friends, laughing about how you’re depressed, yelling and screaming, melodies, Surge (that awesome green soda/pop that they don’t sell anymore in the US but they used to have at Burger King), being all whatever and stuff.
EDIT: If I had heard this earlier, I would have put it somewhere on my top 10 EP list for last year. I really like it.

Listen to our song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“I’m dying of strangulation from New York Public Education
Hold me under till my face turns blue
Pull me up when tuition’s due
I’ve always considered this dumb, with the pencil between my finger and my thumb
And the proper thing for me to do is to con myself into believing it’s true
I remember the days when I wouldn’t have to worry up in bed
Never was I forced to try to protect myself from the paper cuts on my eyes.
I’m dying of strangulation from New York public education
Hold me under till my face turns blue, pull me up when tuitions due”
