about

SOAR formed in the summer of 2015 after its members, who had all previously fronted their own bands, came together to start a project that was more collaborative in nature. Like a set of analytical relations, SOAR combines the best parts each persons' perspective and style to create a sound all their own.

With rotating lyricists, four-part harmonies, and shared songwriting, SOAR's catalogue evokes a wide scope of sounds and sentiments that can't be pinned down to any one genre. Mirrored by the name of their debut full length, dark / gold, out August 25, 2017 on Father/Daughter Records, SOAR strikes a balance between something heavy and opaque, something melodic and bright, something ultimately unyielding.

SOAR is:
Shannon Bodrogi: vox/guitar
Jenna Marx: vox/guitar
Rebecca Redman: vox/drums
Mai Oseto: vox/bass

Track Name: Fort Funston
Bury it in the mollusks and moss
to be forgotten in the rocks.
Let the waves erase
the milky way
of shattered bone.

When you told me this was it
I remember looking at a brick in the wall
and thinking I wish I could be it.
When you told me this is the end
I want to be just friends.
Well maybe we would be
if you had been one.

We sat on a cliff in the ice plant
and I cried until I couldn’t.

Bury it in the mollusk and moss
to be forgotten in the rocks.
Let the waves erase
the milky way.
Track Name: Secret Santa
They'll say we never should have let her
or we never should have left her.
Well I've been trying to remember
and you've been trying, you’ve been trying
to forget her.
How's that working out for you?

She's gone, so long.
Everyone's given up on secret santa and
all the road trips we said we'd do
after we'd leave
that little rock in the blue.

After we'd leave
that little rock in the blue.
Track Name: Fatigue
I’m tired of reading between lines
that I’m receiving.
I’m tired of thinking
of what I could have said
to get stuck in your head
the way you’re stuck in mine.

I’m tired of feeling like
I didn’t do something right.
I’m tired of feeling like
you’ll never be mine.
You’ll never be mine.

And after this fatigue
I think I’m realizing
that that will be just fine.

You’ll never be mine
[That’ll be just fine]

I’m tired of reading between.
Track Name: 19th Ave
Holding tight
on the back of your bike and my
arms are sore from more than that.
I want to know you,
but I’m having a hard time letting you in.

Theory exception
the standard is still the same.
Limited to what I see on the screen
versus how it turns out on the page.
I just want it to be the same.

We’re going slow but bumps could hurt
if we hit them.

Unsure of what comes next
with a bad case of limerence.
Need space but not too much.
I’m longing for your touch.
Fond heart can’t wait much longer.

Loneliness is my worst addiction,
but I can’t stop checking my phone.
I’m so scared of being alone.
You tell me that I’m all there is.
We’re going slow,
but I’m learning how to allow happiness.

We’re going slow but I'm learning how to
We’re going slow but I'm learning how
Track Name: Speakwrite
Can you recognize
how only to remove
The complex from meaningless?
Takes too much time
with rare accomplishment.
Neglected skill not satisfied.

Please come back.
We need people like you.

Appealingly replaced.
My tone helps you focus.
Composing your biggest mistake.
So heavily overlook
the rebelled information
your brevity leaves empty.

Please come back.
We need people like you.

Parallel form developing
terrific technique
to remove the complex
from meaningless.
Track Name: In the Bed
Blanket flower
so popular.
The garden is dying
and you just let her.
A warm situation
three years after which
must be replaced.

Do not last long
In the bed.

Shaded locations.
Only the double form.
When young it must be tied
With no special requirements.

Only by division
Slightly spreading habit.
This feature is a disadvantage.

Do not last.
Track Name: Old Dogs
Waiting
By the overpass. It wouldn’t last.
Finally get brave enough to say,
"Just stay away," this can be undone

You say people change
But I can't change the fact
That I hurt you every time
I forget to call you back

You got the short end of the stick
Can't teach an old dog new tricks
I can't be everything that you miss

Misleading
Uneven give and take. Bound to break.
Insisting, “We’ll be better this time.”
Your words, not mine.
It’s been more than enough.

You say people change
But you can't change the fact
That I always say, "I'm fine"
When your words are an attack

You got the short end of the stick
Can't teach an old dog new tricks
I can't be everything that you miss

I'm sorry I can't express
The feelings that I suppress
I can't keep making you guess
Track Name: Domino
She screamed,
“No,” when you got the call about him.
I couldn't understand what you said
when you told us he was dead.
It was as sudden as an earthquake
my knees they shake about it.
Is this the calm before the storm?
The grudge I hold keeps me at home.
I won't go.

Your house was filled with us all
now we're marks left on the wall.

Five gone. I'm barely holding on, 18.
A death domino effect.
An empty home that we neglect.
I only care because your
bones are there
buried under a willow tree
next to the river by a gate.
The summer heat we couldn't take
don't make me.

Your house was filled with us all
now we're marks left on the wall

I keep thinking about
her alone in their bed.
My biggest regrets
not calling to check
up on her then.
Her world was wrecked.

Your house was filled with us all
now we're marks left on the wall.

All our photos are long gone.
Track Name: Poor Soil
Stuck in the pit in my stomach.
Trapped in the limestone and granite.
Felt bad, now I feel worse.
Bury me in the dirt.

To feel, cold and complete

Pull me down to the core
just to find myself
under another stone sky.
Suspended in
superficial insignificance
with vertigo
from attraction to the void.

To feel, blue air vibrating

Sweet drone
Silent bitter echo
Track Name: Keeping a Record
Keep different sorts of records.
Personal preference details
the climate.
List characteristics,
and needs of those plants
with which you are specifically
interested.

I am keeping a record.
I am keeping the record
you gave me.

On April 15th
it was overcast and 45O
from an unknown author
watering was unnecessary

Rainfall blossoming
Time spent
Weather dying
and other pests

I’m keeping a record.
I am keeping the record
you gave me.
