Sounds of Noise / Press

“Sounds of Noise is a Long Beach based band under their own record label, Such Odd Noises. After meeting at the Stardust music venue in Downey, California, Paul Corley and Eddie Monroy came together to form the band Sounds of Noise. The band’s name was created by Corley who came up with “Sound of Noise,” but was later edited by Monroy. He asked fellow band mates, “How about Sounds of Noise?” The addition of the s at the end of sound created the plurality that better represents the band. The three piece band includes Eddie Monroy (vocals and guitar), Paul Corley (vocals and bass), and drummer Erik Zimmerman. Sounds of Noise released their first album “Hayter” in 2009. Their larger fan bases are in the Pomona area as well as Long Beach, where the band resides. With a growing fan base in the U.S. and several other countries, they are definitely one band to follow. They are currently in the works of tracking their untitled second album that will include special guests. ”

“So if Monday's Bomba Estereo show brings the chance to explore "world" music, tonight's Rocket Room (230 Pueblo Ave., myspace.com/therocketroom) show brings the chance to revisit "old world" music. As in, the world of the 1990s: Having checked out its MySpace page, I could imagine having put on a Sounds of Noise CD in my buddy's basement, making it the de facto soundtrack to a riotous teenage Friday night of playing NHL '94. That's what you get when a band comes together over "beers, girl troubles and bands that they love," and those bands include Built to Spill, the Pixies and Nirvana. Tracks from their first disc sound pretty good; if you're 21-plus and interested in sweating through your old Pavement T-shirt, do it with these guys tonight. — Kirk Woundy”
