Soeza are from various parts of the south west of England, but for the last few years have been focused around the city of Bristol. The 'Why Do You Do?' is the second album from Soeza, and their first for the acclaimed UK indie label Gringo Records. members of Soeza have also performed in/with Movietone, Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation), Many Fingers and the English folk artist Eliza Carthy. On 'Why Do You Do?' Soeza consolidate their unique blend of post-hardcore, mixing Can-esque grooves, and urgent guitars with two disparate yet complimentary singers in the shape of Ben Owen's clear-voiced declarations and Jenny Robinson's soulful melodies. The band twist this template in every conceivable direction, with French horn rounding out subtle modulations of mood. The Soeza sound? Eminently danceable, lyrically fascinating, melodically charming, hard rocking in an angular yet graceful fashion. The resulting collection of songs is varied in tone and temperament, from the crushing bombast of opener "Brackish Waters", the eerie poise of "Downscale", to the spiralling "Prince The Boat". "Genuflect" recalls June Of 44, Fugazi and Deerhoof at their most joyous, all in one song.
