Bio: The Ex-Bombers are a seedy film noir pop duo from Charleston, Ill. Cloaked in sultry rhythms and narcotic melodies, the pair have released two full-length vinyl-only LPs and a 7” anti-single on Cavetone Records. In sound and aesthetic they combine femme fatale jazz and the seediest of 60s pop.

“The Ex-Bombers have been featured and reviewed in dozens of publications from around the U.S. and beyond. These articles describe the band as having a "sultry pop sound [where] deep, dark bass lines and straightforward, no-nonsense beats under moody vocals come together in a nearly narcotic composition” (Vox Magazine/ Columbia, MO) comparable to “the Velvet Underground or Sonic Youth” (Dayton City Paper).”
