The gandharvas first day of spring

A Soap Bubble and Inertia is the debut album by Canadian alternative rock band The Gandharvas. It was released in 1994 on the Thermometer Sound Surface record label. By February 1995, the album had sold 30,000 units in Canada.


The album's title is taken from a line in the novel Notes from Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

The album's single, "The First Day of Spring," was named Song of the Year for 1994 (CASBY Award) by The Edge 102.1 in Toronto, Ontario. In 2007 the same radio station ranked the song #14 in their "Top 102 Canadian New Rock Songs of All Time" list.
