Dante Elephante / Press
"On German Aquatics, Santa Barbara pop rockers Dante Elephante beautifully capture that youthful beach-bound feel with a collection of up-tempo surf rock that's prime for summertime road-tripping."
"This Santa Barbarian four-piece captures us with their sunny guitar riffs and vibrant melody."
"The lead single, 'Heartbeat', has all the elements we love about surf music: jangly guitars, plenty of reverb, and a funky take on an old genre. It’s easy to see why the guys are always 'mad chill.'"
"From the very first few seconds of opening track 'All The Time' - with its energetic, crisp hi-hat sound juxtaposed with the upbeat guitar - you know exactly what you're in for. It's catchy, it's happy, it's fun."
"German Aquatics plays as if its back in a nostalgic California of the older days of the 1960's, but with 50 years of pop and indie music happening somewhere in between"
"With lead vocalist Ruben Zarate’s genial voice firmly at the helm, Dante Elephante brought to life their sun-soaked sound..."
"Dante Elephante followed suit with a wonderfully eclectic mini-set worth of Beatles- and Strokes-tinged indie rock."
