New Music Friday: SOMEDAYSOON PRODUCTIONS Releases Energetic, Pop-Driven EP
Written by The Sound Kate on Fri, 5/20
I was really excited when Julia Monica, the vocalist/guitarist in Rochester-based SOMEDAYSOON PRODUCTIONS reached out to me about her band's new album. I am a sucker for energetic, eclectic female musicians and I was so happy to come across this band, full of force, attitude, and emotion. We need this in Roc. Hell yes.
SOMEDAYSOON PRODUCTIONS formed in 2021, self-described as an indie-rock/pop outfit inspired by artists such as M83, Tycho, and Passion Pit. I personally hear a bit of early Snail Mail/early Japanese Breakfast - generally the passion behind the lyrics and vibes of longing and hope throughout.
The EP was inspired by Julia's personal experiences and feelings of isolation/ lack of connection of the past few years - and how they're so relatable in the world right now. Moments of detachment are prevalent themes in life, and the EP attempts to attract attention to humanity and what's actually going on around us; inspiring us to connect, hopefully. The songs are quite dynamic due to the keys/organ and acoustic guitar intermixed within. My favorite on the album is title track 'Everyone Dies At The End', in which Julia beautifully narrates over an atmospheric, building track that feels like a piece of art.
SOMEDAYSOON PRODUCTIONS is: Alex Fortier on keys & vocals - Dave Goebel on drums - Eugene Bisdikian on bass - Julia Monica on guitar, vocals. They are playing 5/21 at the NAMI Annual Walk for Mental Healthy Awareness at the Village Gate at 9A (FREE).
