Soda Blonde announce new album Dream Big, tour and single ‘Bad Machine’


Soda Blonde have announced their second album Dream Big, the followup to 2021’s Small Talk.

Dream Big is the title of the record, and the band say it’s also a mantra…

“… a mission statement from four lifelong friends. It’s their promise to themselves, and a message to all who come along for the ride: A reminder that life is precious, fragile, and fleeting, so we might as well dream big and hold nothing back.

Lead single ‘Bad Machine’ marks a fresh sound for the band…

“We can be slaves to our own impulses,” says guitarist Adam O’Regan of the song. “This idea that ‘every part of me is a bad machine breaking everything all the time, every part of me has been wired to repeat, I’ve got a bad desire by design,’ it’s this idea of recognising that this is just a part of who you are and going with that; but it’s a double- edged sword. Sometimes taking a chance, being spontaneous and taking a risk – they’re not always the safest moves to make, but that propensity to dare is what makes us great. We wouldn’t exist without it.”

Dream Big is out September 8th.
