RoadkillSoda is a rock band based in Bucharest, Romania. The group was formed in 2011 by guitarist and composer Mihnea Fereza, joined by his brother, bassist Victor “Vava” Ferezan, drummer Alexandru Ghita and Luna Amara vocalist Mihnea Blondariu. First release came the same year, A Fucked Up Trip Gone Bad, on a limited tape edition. Since 2011, original line up experienced several changes, as different musicians joined Mihnea and Victor.
Style wise, the band originated from the stoner, low-fi, underground party culture, visible on their first 3 albums, released in the following 3 years. After the 2014 album, »Yo No Hablo Ingles«, starting with »Space Echo And Time« (2016), and »Mephobia« (2018), the band took a wider musical approach, both with modern and vintage influences, such as Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Queens Of The Stone Age, Royal Blood, Brant Bjork. The arrival of vocalist Andrei “Byst” Gherghei brought a strong grunge vibe to the group.
