Ebi Soda - Honk If You're Sad

Ebi Soda

Honk If You're Sad (2xLP)

Release date: October 07, 2022
Label: Tru Thoughts
HARD-JAMMING, MERCURIAL BEAT-JAZZ FOR THE INTERNET-BRAINED

Born from ten-hour jam sessions in peeling Brighton bedsits, the technical parameters of a bootstrap recording process and the osmotic, multi-genre influence of internet music archives, quintet Ebi Soda have been steady-cultivating a unique sound amidst the exploding UK jazz scene.

In typical Ebi style, while recalling jazz pioneers in playing style, ‘Honk If You’re Sad’ draws from a vast neural network of influences: the Ebi Brain has been marinating in a digital soup of trap, drill, dub, post-punk and no wave to name but a few. The result is a mercurial record that beams in psychedelia, dissonance, serene ambient passages, tough, neck-snapping beats and lush textures, all underscored by the intersection of jazz, hip hop and electronic music.

From influences as diverse as Kokoroko, Can, Lounge Lizards, BadBadNotGood, Ronin Arkestra, and The Fall, ‘Honk if You’re Sad’ focuses on a cohesive whole; an explorative, playful and technically brilliant record that coaxes the listener through immersive phases of fun, chaos and harmony.

FOR EBI MISCHIEF, ECLECTICISM, NECK-SNAPPING BEATS AND A JAZZ TRIP TO REMEMBER/REGRET – ‘HONK IF YOU’RE SAD’.
