Forming in 1996, Soeza has put out some impressive releases, including two highly acclaimed EPs, and a charming debut, 2001's Founded by Sportmen and Outlaws on the French label, Prohibited. Their second record and Gringo debut, Why Do You Do? genuinely displays the band's maturity and growth, where through their music and creativity they have found a greater degree of focus. Here you will find a lush tapestry of post-hardcore influences, blending in with high energy, danceable grooves, stunning percussion, passionate guitars, all featured to greater heighten the effect of these well-crafted compositions. Soeza can be melodically diverse at times; subtle and graceful in their approach, only to soon fully lash out with angular rock sensibilities. As a result, songs such as the epic opener 'Brackish Waters,' the haunting 'Downscale,' and the shifting, disorienting 'Prince The Boat' take the listener on a gripping journey full of twists and turns, full of melodic colors and tempos.

Though the record does seem to lack coherent vision in some of the songs concerning composition, it should be noted that Soeza is far advanced in the art of experimentation and taking the sound of music to the limits and past borders of current commercial radio acceptance. The duel lead voices of Ben Owen and Jenny Robinson are genuinely the saviors of this record, keeping the glue together and helping the instrumentation to flow with more spontaneity. Recently the group has focused their energies, residing in the city of Bristol, England, as many of the members are part of a broader project and collective platform by the name of Pull the Strings.
