Soda Shop is a New York band whose dreamy, shimmery indie pop evokes the same 50s nostalgia as their wholesome name. With songs centered around the songwriting/producing duo of Maria Usbeck (also of Brooklyn band Selebrities) and Drew Diver (formerly of The Drums), they rarely play live but have been making a huge impression with their fantastically recorded tracks. The band stopped by Serious Business Music to share a live taste of what they’re capable of, and to chat about the meaning of their songs.
