Shortwave Society / Press

“Knoxville’s own Shortwave Society opened for Belew, sounding like a string-heavy Arcade Fire/Postal Service hybrid. Their pop harmonies and compelling string work gelled nicely with the comedic undertones of their songs.”

“achievement lies in the combined effort of an open-minded approach and technical skill. This Southern quintet has managed to synthesize the group anatomy of the orchestra tone with new-wave computer generated sound bites to create a simultaneously classical and futuristic utterance.”

“shortwave society is the smartest band in knoxville...”

Matt Morelock - WDVX

“Shortwave Society make distinctly elegant and romantic pop music...[t]heir music is not like anything I have heard...”

“Shortwave Society's vivid hybrid of guitar, piano, cello and … computer, is something new, for sure.”

“They've put together their incredibly creative forces to produce a unique and engaging sound.. don't expect anything run-of-the-mill from 'em.”
