Beast Make Bomb: It Snowed Last Night
Combining fuzzed out pop melodies with the distorted punk attitude of late 1970s 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 distortion driven guitars (Glenn VanDyke), warm bass lines (Sam Goldfine), and locked down up-tempo drums (Hartley Lewis) on the band’s two EPs: Skinny Legs (2010) and Sourpuss (2011). 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 South By Southwest showcase, sharing the stage with Queens of the Stone Age. [via Planetary]
