Italian Soda is a Los Angeles-based experimental pop band inspired by Brazilian samba, surf rock and bubbles. An unlikely combination of acoustic instruments and synth sounds, the group
plays music with a rhythmic, airy yet unrestrained approach. Influences include the experimentalism of Björk, the joy and groove of Hermeto Pascoal and the electronic psychedelia of Stereolab. The band features bassoonist Cody Putman, vocalist Molly Pease,
bassist Miller Wrenn and drummer Jacob Richards. Having played shows at venues in Los Angeles such as Rec Center, Que Sera and Roy O. Disney Hall, Italian Soda is on their very first tour throughout the United States. Their EP “Bubbles” was released in February of 2017 and is available online at
