“Soda” encapsulates the worry-free feeling of embarking on a journey without a care, cruising down the highway with one hand out the car window, wind in your hair. Following the challenging year that was 2020, “Soda” instils a deep-rooted peace that comes with starting anew, encouraging listeners to look forward to their journey in the new year.
"Despite the chaos and tragedy that was 2020, it really challenged me and forced me to evolve in more ways than just music," James says. "So there’s been a silver lining. I made this song as a reflection of that perspective. Learning to ride the highs and the lows. The future is unknown, so all we can do is have enough self awareness to make the most out of life's surprises."
