BEAST MAKE BOMB SOURPUSS AVAILABLE NOW
“Indie rock that turns its hooks on its head. RIYL Pod-era Breeders.” – NPR All Songs Considered
“Beast Make Bomb sound like the Pixies, if they were really into Black Flag and let Kim sing all the songs.” – Time Out New York
“Beast Make Bomb’s exhilaration is charming, even cute. Maybe none of the band members want to say it aloud, but it feels like something is brewing for the NYU quartet.” – CMJ
“["Coney Island"] makes us want to jump on the car we don’t have, roll all the windows down, take a road trip to anywhere, forget about the world and crack a smile” – The Deli Magazine
Combining fuzzed out pop melodies with the distorted punk attitude of late 1970′s New York, Brooklyn’s Beast Make Bomb craft songs informed by twenty-something college life in urban grit. Powerful yet tastefully delicate vocals by Houston native Ceci Gomez croon over distorted guitars (Glenn VanDyke), warm bass lines (Sam Goldfine), and locked down up-tempo drums (Hartley Lewis) on the band’s two self-released EPs, Skinny Legs and Sourpuss. Bringing a pronounced energy and sonic solidarity to the stage, Beast Make Bomb’s roots lay firmly at the intersection of indie pop and punk rock, inhabiting a city known for spawning the pioneers of both.
Formed as NYU students in 2009, Beast Make Bomb have toured the country in support of several acts, including Cold War Kids, Tokyo Police Club, and The Whigs. The band was also featured at Rolling Stone Magazine’s 2011 SXSW showcase, sharing the stage with Queens of the Stone Age. This year, the garage-pop quartet is returning to SXSW to play a string of dates in the midst of their southern tour. As the group puts it, “We are young spirited grungey transplants living in Brooklyn and we want the rawness and high energy of our live performances to spread far and wide so that when people read about us they feel like they must go to the live show to get the full picture of what Beast Make Bomb is.”
The band will be playing shows in the New York area, gearing up for the release of their new EP, Double Dipper, available May 15th, 2012.
