The Echo Bombs / Press

“The Echo Bombs are filled with so much vitriol and disgust that it goes down easy in the current atmosphere of the world. This is the sound of surfing on the wave of the apocalypse.”

“This album is as much surf punk as it is devil worship. - on King of Uncool”

“Formed in 2010 following the dissolution of electro-dance band The Analog Society, The Echo Bombs aimed for a more lo-fi approach, a la Best Coast. Now they're switching gears again with their first full-length, King of Uncool. It's more primal and creepy as fuck, with sludgy garage-rock riffs that typify characters with "blue skin, hands of a dragon" and "like the taste of teens."”

“Even for a three-piece, Echo Bombs show a lot of range. Self-described as "psycho surf," the band mixes the lo-fi edge of garage rock with a grungy aggression. They get swampy on "Creeper" or blast melancholy crescendos on "Summerlong" while "Tear It Down" takes Dick Dale and the Deltones to a scuzzy truck stop restroom and gives it a flushie.”

“The [Awkward Summer] EP becomes something of a strange anachronistic recording of a sound that has never actually existed.”
