Grape Soda: Simultaneously murky and effervescent, like the beverage with which they share a name, Grape Soda blends the noisy exuberance of psychedelia with the minimalism of post punk. Perhaps this can be explained by the Lewis brothers’ musical pedigrees. A lifelong resident of the D.C. area, Mat was weaned on political punk and spent time playing drums with DIY mainstays The Max Levine Ensemble and Teenbeat Records group Pocket Rockets. Meanwhile, Ryan was living in Athens, Georgia playing in Kincaid, The Sunshine Fix, The Agenda and more while running one of the town’s most beloved indie labels, Kindercore Records, amassing an impressive back catalog of over 80 releases, including classics from Olivia Tremor Control, Of Montreal, I Am The World Trade Center, and Dressy Bessy.
