Staunch anti-traditionalists, Ebi Soda are a group of musicians who thrive on the idea of contradiction, creating an idiosyncratic blend of jazz, hip-hop and no-wave post-punk.
Seemingly more inspired by the atmosphere inside a rave – from UK-based underground genres like broken beat to drill – than the sounds heard inside a jazz club. Their only debt to typical jazz being to attempt to innovate and experiment at every opportunity. Characterised by searing trombones, erratic drum-breaks and heavy electronic multi-effect soundscapes that aid on a foundation of breakbeats and sensual basslines.
Formed in the seaside town of Brighton, Ebi Soda keep a post-punk DIY ethic close to their hearts, with songs often birthed from sweaty smoky university bedrooms rather than that of the big band hall.
