Boom Said Thunder from US: Find Us
In 50 words or less, tell us what you sound like?
We use bass, drums, and vocals to write bombastic and groovy rock music. Our sound has a sweaty heaviness to it but with a lot of melody. We try to balance a kind of blissful naivety with dark fuzzy grooves. It's got mood.
In 100 words or less, tell us why we should listen to you?
We're trying to write songs with a certain poetry in both the songwriting and the interplay between our three instruments. We have a lot of fun when we play and really try to translate that into the music at every show. We're hopefully bringing something interesting to listeners simply by following our instincts and creating rock music that feels right for us.
If you had to pick one of your tracks for our readers to listen to, which would it be?
Give us 3 bands you’d recommend we listen to?
Here are some pals of ours that kick ass:
1. Burial Sound (Boston): https://soundcloud.com/burialsound
2. Dead Native (Chicago): https://deadnative.bandcamp.com/
3. Wanna (NYC): https://soundcloud.com/wannaworldwide
What inspires your music?
We have a lot of shared experience doing visual art and design, and that way of thinking tends to shape our songs when we write. We also get a lot inspiration from all of the bands and musicians we've met along the way. Just sharing a show with someone and feeling that comradery and support inspires us to keep going. Seeing your friends play on stage is endlessly inspiring.
What we say:
Stunning. Just no other word for it; stunning. Sometimes a band just emerges out of the mists to totally blow your mind and Boom Said Thunder are one of those bands. Blissed out, groovy psych in a similar vein to Esben & The Witch or BIRD. - Dan Salter
