Solidarity Friends!

What do you get when you mix two ounces of Joe Strummer-like political anger topped off with the guitar tones of Johnny Marr? The socialist alt-rock cocktail of your dreams. The Soviet Influence: a socialist alt-rock trio that appeal to nostalgic listeners while refusing to become stale, combining 60s-era protest themes with the post punk, new wave and modern styles of the everchanging indie rock genre. Name-checked by Alan Cross, Obscure Sound and Divide and Conquer, the band has three full-length albums under their belt, the latest released in 2021 titled Socialism: An Introduction.With styles that evoke the likes of Radiohead, Matthew Good and The Talking Heads, The Soviet Influence effortlessly combines progressive political messaging with neo-vintage sounds, labeling the band as a stand-out amongst their competition- and an act to keep your eye on.
