The Bay Area has a way of transforming familiar elements into strikingly original new sounds, and the quartet Solate embodies the best of this alchemical reaction. Built upon the graceful guitar work of Joel Mandella and interlocking bass lines of Kevin Goldberg, Solate features the translucent vocals of Maya Vilaplana and luscious harmonies of Marissa Bergmann. Flowing with the crisp and inviting momentum of an alpine stream, but charged with the sultry heat of a Caribbean sunset, Solate creates an indie-soul sound that feels reassuringly familiar and tantalizingly enigmatic.
