Soda Blonde find closure in ‘Holy Roses’

Words: Dylan Murphy

The four piece have shared another new single ahead of their hotly anticipated new album.

With the promise of live music on the horizon, album rollouts are coming thick and fast and today, Soda Blonde have blessed our ears with another introspective single ‘Holy Roses’.

It lands following the success of title track ‘Small Talk‘, ‘In the Heat of the Night‘ and the news of a forthcoming tour later this year. Small Talk is due to arrive via Velveteen Records on July 9 and entirely self-produced.

Speaking on Holy Roses’ Faye said “So many of us use rejection as fuel to justify stagnancy or living in the past. Holy Roses provides me with some closure and I feel it’s one of the most important tracks on the album. I am directly addressing the people in my past who have hurt me in this song. The Rose is symbolic of war and the fleetingness of life and death. It also represents the fall of Christianity, which compare not only to our country’s dying Catholic status but to the oppression I felt throughout my own personal and work life. Holy Roses is the moment of reckoning for me, in all respects. I’m letting go of the people who have hurt me and my old way of living”
