Taken from the forthcoming EP, Halogen Days. Out April 7th, 2017

"Both a departure from the lighter sound of their debut album, and an affirmation of the inherent promise that record showed, Soho is the sound of a band truly coming in to their own" - Louder Than war

"Drawing their mood from alt. rock masters like Weezer or The Pixies, Spence sings the bittersweet feeling of a soul looking for true emotions and belonging in a bogus existence" - Gold Flake Paint

"When lead singer Shay Spence sings there’s a sense of cold hard emotion, as if previous suppression has her sharp lyrics bubbling to the surface" -BuffaBlog

"The enthralled sentiments that revolve around the notion of “I want to feel alright” are met with a series of introspection sections that mull over the inward fleeting sentiments where introverted & extroverted aspects collide in an explosion of spinning city lights." - IMPOSE

"As a group, they've mastered the art of both sonic and emotional build-up and release..." - The Deli

"What may sound like a regular indie rock song with jangly guitars soon becomes a ferocious yet subdued snap of psychedelic chaos." -oh es tee

Track Name: SoHo
Who would ever call this fun,
running on an endless drone
A color wheel for everyone
color wheel for everyone
staring at the midday sun

Every tenant disavowed
Thoughts you never said out loud
Tell them how it all works out,
there’s nothing here to worry about
now back into the faceless crowd

Everything I’m dreading:
SoHo on the weekend
A jacket for a wedding
I don’t want to be in

I wanna feel alright.
I’m faded, dematerialized
Swimming in a sea of light,
I’m swimming in a sea of light
I’m floating on an awful high

Silver sun setting
on SoHo on the weekend
There’s something I’m forgetting,
theres something that I needed
Something I’m forgetting…
