Bio

The 21 year old, Brae Luafalealo, birthed the BOY SODA project from the comfort of his own bedroom in his hometown of Terrigal, Central Coast. He seamlessly intertwines the golden era of 2000s R&B with his own percussive melodies and velvety vocals that are smoother than the honey melting into your morning cup of tea.
With only a handful of singles behind him, Boy Soda opened for Dominic Fike in LA at a Camp Flog Gnaw & Converse pop-up event in November 2019. He also went on to support Drapht at The Beery in the same month, proving that his live performance can transport him to national and international audiences, all the while mastering the R&B genre straight from his bedroom.
Boy Soda has a few releases on the horizon for the remainder of the year to accompany his debut EP out early 2021. Until then, he’ll have you romantic and nostalgic, turning down the lights and cozying up with your boo.

BOY SODA keeps it simple enough here - minimal beat, weeping electric guitar - and just lets that damn voice do the rest. It works.
