It's been a fun, weird little ride watching Soviet evolve over the past 10 months from a flower-punk trio who seemed to release EP's on a weekly basis, to a 5-piece Weezer/Ozma hybrid more intent on fucking shit up than ever. In between we've seen the lineups fluxuate from 3 members, to 4, then back to 3 before settling on its current 5-piece state, with Andrew Weir going from the band's drummer to its guitarist and now to bass (the instrument he appears most comfortable on stage with). And then there's spastic frontman John Spies who has only gotten more over the top and out of control since opting to quit playing guitar during live shows.
The band will be releasing their first professionally-recorded material soon by the way of a 7" from upstart imprint Treefall Sounds. The video above for "Hall and Oates" is from that upcoming release.
