Power-pop out fit Warm Soda is Matthew Melton’s brainchild and it only comes out to play in the summer. All of the songs on here have that carefree quality about them that works so much better when the sun is shining. Another thing all of the songs have in common is that they sound kinda the same. The drums seem to be stuck in the same gear, every song start with a catchy hook and ends with a sweet little solo. And when they’re feeling really bold, they’ll throw in a minor chord change.
I’m not saying “Symbolic Dream” is a bad album. Melton knows his way around a hook and things sound pleasant enough. I just wish they added some more diversity, which would have upped the replay value of “Symbolic Dream”.
