New Music: Soda State

A London-based duo who present themselves as a digital project, with a flair for slick beats. This track is a luxurious reworking of Metronomy’s 2011 single of the same name, and is a pure synth delight to revel in.

“We want the music we create to take the listener into a place of escapism.
Lyrically, sonically and visually, there’s a sense of taking yourself away from
the world around you, whether giving yourself over to the moment or losing
yourself in a feeling of nostalgia. We call this feeling of escapism
‘The Soda State Of Mind’”.

So who’s going home with a Mercury?

We’ll find out on BBC2 in the UK from 10pm tonight with the highly annoying Lauren Laverne (or ‘1995’ as I like to call her). If you do a Google Image search for the awards, PJ Harvey seems to be the most googled artist today, but it’s anyone’s game.

UPDATE: PJ Harvey won.
