Emby Alexander • "You Can Do It" • 2021




"Positively upbeat and hook-filled"
- MXDWN

"Revolving around steely electric guitars and percussion made from sounds of a half-filled bathtub, this dreamy tune is definitely a must-listen."
- Indie88

A native Phoenician, frontman Michael Alexander grew up in punk and garage bands, and utilizes that scrappy DIY mentality in music that stretches into ethereal majesty. The compositions of SOARS ERA similarly blend seeming opposites in their recording, utilizing taut technological instrumentation and loose human improvisation in equal doses. Drawing from the new wave and no wave traditions of bands like Joy Division, Talking Heads, and Suicide, Alexander and bandmates Kyle Grabski, Austin Harshman, and Jeremy Lentz then explode the results like fireworks in the night sky.
