Blue Wave Theory / Press

“A massive array of styles with everything from psychedelic jams on “Huckster” and Devo-style proto punk on “Ooolin Poolin Oy,” all the way to garage punk on “Gumby Goes Green” and technical rock a la Rush on “Labyrinth.” Throughout it all, the band’s surf approach leads the way. It almost feels like a modern-day mash-up of several generations of rock, with surf as the framework as opposed to hip-hop. Fans of Los Straitjackets, Dick Dale, Link Wray, and The Mermen will enjoy this eponymous full-length debut from Blue Wave Theory, which is full of Pulp Fiction-meets-Pink Floyd craziness.”

Peter Viele - Eastern Surf Magazine

“If you like retro surf music with Dick Dale / "Pulp Fiction" guitars, you will love this group. I know I do.”

“We are thrilled to work with Blue Wave Theory in musical partnership. Their music is especially perfect for San Diego! Blue Wave Theory explores the greater sophistication of progressive rock, and yet is dynamically paired with our surf culture here in Southern California. I am a fan!”

“High energy surf rock, with elements of Pink Floyd / King Crimson-esque musical sophistication, from Blue Wave Theory...I *love* it!”

“You out there who do not yet have the new Blue Wave Theory release...get your hands on it and play at LOUD volume!”

"I've listened to this release many times, and it keeps getting better. The live feel is real and the sonic journey is accentuated by it."

Jason Brock - Director of Artist & Business Development, ArtisTech Media

“Crunchy, modern, and short board rippin'!”

Phil Dirt - Reverb Central

“If you're a fan of Dick Dale, the Ventures, the Mermen, or Los Straitjackets, with a little X or Dead Kennedys thrown in, then you'll love this band.”

“I've had this CD for several weeks now, and I become more absorbed each time I put it on.”
