Hear a New Grape Soda Song

Today, local organ-n-drums duo Grape Soda premiered a brand new track via Under the Radar. “Obvious Signs” is a familiar tune to anyone who’s caught one of the group’s recent live shows. It’ll be on the group’s official debut Form a Sign (out Nov. 6 via Kindercore), and it’s a splendid lil’ thing, indeed.

Listen/download here. And watch for a very special new Flagpole feature starring Grape Soda organist/singer Mat Lewis in next week’s paper.
