Japanese indie-poppers Soda Fountains serve as a sort of cuddly litmus test: if you can’t handle hearty handfuls of cute in music, you’ll detest this group. But if the word twee turns you on, and tunes about sunny picnics and rainbows get you going…meet Soda Fountains. They have a new album out on Oct. 28, titled Rainbow Sprinkler, and have released a teaser video previewing most of the new songs. Pay special attention to the almost-disco twee of “Picnic,” a standout among these cuddly-but-sorta-sad songs.
If tons of cuteness is your thing, check out Rainbow Sprinkler when it drops on Oct. 28.
