Martin Cilia / Press

“If you play guitar for the legendary Atlantics, you have to be good. Extremely good. Enter Martin Cilia. Extremely good doesn't begin to cover things when you're talking about his ability with a guitar. This man can flat get with an axe. Make no mistake about it, he's great. Martin's new composition, Surf Explosion, is as good as surf music gets. It's performed in the classic surf style with two guitars, a bass and drums. To me, this is surf music, the way surf music was meant to be played. My vocabulary of superlatives falls short when describing Surf Explosion. It's an explosive instrumental surf tune that comes at you with wave after wave of overwhelming sonic strength. It's a fast-paced ride on a surf rock tsunami. The Herculean power with which the musicians attack their instruments is an awesome thing to hear. We are talking the upper echelons of world-class music and musicianship.”

"[Surfersaurus is] a splendid release from [the] Australian guitarist ... some stellar tracks with Martin's signature whammy and intensity. Wonderful!" Phil Dirt, Reverb Central
