Sonoda (so-NO-duh) is a meditative pop ensemble based in Los Angeles, CA. The quartet approaches live music and dream pop with a delicate, spiritual, and therapeutic perspective. A gentle glow of crystals, salt lamps, candles and flowers adorn the stage as the band creates a welcoming wash of ambience with warbly guitars and oscillating synths. Each performance opens and closes with a soothing ‘Ohm’ sung by front woman Lisa Sonoda, who resounds deeply on stage with her singing bowl, tingshas and chimes. It is in this dream world where Sonoda’s lullaby-pop sensibility conjures the auras of influences like Broadcast and Beach House. From these influences, Sonoda offers a new take on music and dream pop, bringing us a collective deep breath— a refreshment, a renewal: Meditative Pop.
I was really captivated when I read the short paragraph quoted above. I have first listened to this single and felt something special coming from this song. After reading the statement, it is much more clearer. Another thing I noticed is the length of the track. I think I a huge fan of tracks within 2 minute-ish mark. But we should probably get to the music which is really beautiful. Like a healing therapy. It just eases my mind a little bit from all the noise around me. I really recommend this playing on a loop and enjoying it fully. I am just doing this after a hard workday.
