A disastrous visit to SXSW in 2012 basically split Matthew Melton’s music group Bare Cables, the excellent garage area punk trio he led for four years which released three albums. Following the remaining band still left, he regrouped in-may of 2012 beneath the name Warm Soda pop, with bassist Run after Oren, guitarist Rob Great, and drummer Ian McBrayer up to speed. Their audio was similar compared to that of Bare Cables, but it sensed even more just like the razor-sharp power pop tracks were getting blasted out of a little AM radio in the summertime of 1976. The quartet released an individual in Sept of 2012 (“Response”) and continuing on with Thee Oh Views’ Jon Dwyer and his Castle Encounter label — that they had released the final Bare Cables record — to create their debut record, Someone for you personally, loose in the globe in the first springtime of 2013. After gifting a vintage contemporary power pop tune (“Inform Me within a Whisper”) to Sonny Smith’s I WANT You Poor compilation in past due 2013, the music group returned using its second record for Castle Encounter. Titled Little Reckless Hearts, it had been released in early 2014. That same season, amid internal complications between bandmembers, Melton relocated to Austin, Tx, built a fresh home studio room, and assembled a fresh band offering guitarist Maxx Eaton, bassist Austin Shockley, and drummer Caleb Dawson. Keeping Castle Encounter and feeling revitalized, Warm Soda pop released their third recording, Symbolic Dream, in-may of 2015. The same music group recorded the 4th Warm Soda pop recording, I Don’t Wanna Grow Up, which Castle Encounter released in early 2017. It had been also the final Warm Soda pop recording, as Melton shut up store and started producing music of a far more psychedelic character in Desire Machine, a music group he formed along with his wife, Doris.
