Coffee-punks SODA BOYZ (Pōneke/Te Papaioea) are stoked to announce a new album, Farewell Spit, and release the first single from it, Bad Friend.
SODA BOYZ are New Zealand's premier proponents of slowcore, having honed their delivery to emphasise the negative space, leaving audiences hanging on every note. New single Bad Friend is about honesty and friendship, and when those things break down. The guitars thrum along underneath vocalist Felix Carr's calm but sincere delivery of repetitive but iterating lyrics, a meditation on friendship.
Farewell Spit is the product of two and a half years of writing and unfolding. It was recorded and mixed by quintessential Wellington engineer/producer James Goldsmith at his studio Blue Barn, as well as The Surgery.
