"Expect big things"

Those hoping for a second wave from the musically fertile soil of Birmingham need look no further than Bombers, who refuse tie-dye and irony in favour of short bursts of sharp and satisfying post-punk. Having exceeded expectations with a string of promising singles, expect big things. - Music Week

"darkly brilliant"

Often schizophrenic, darkly brilliant, and overall pretty frickin’ addictive...It’s as explosive and riotous as it is short, and while sometimes you just wish that there were more songs on the EP, it just wets your appetite for a future full-length LP. Do you hear that, Bombers? Get working on an album already. You tease - Musical Mathematics

Having already been picked up by Artrocker Magazine last year, Bombers have built on the success of their ‘Film Fanatic’ EP and have since been highlighted by NME and The Independent as one of the great emerging B-Town bands coming out of Birmingham alongside others such as Swim Deep and Peace.

Coming on like a twisted Joy Division with contorted James Chance style hooks and a nod towards The Boys Next Door new single ‘Drawing’ b/w ‘Buddy’s In A Cult’ is less then 2 minutes of driving bass lines and stabbing guitar parts that jerk and writhe around as the vocals from David Duell proclaim “I can tell I’m going wrong” over and over with a sense unhinged pleasure. It’s a dark and manic bombardment of flailing riffs and swagger.

Dragging themselves around the country they have fast been building up a following with their frenetic wave of sound that bursts with energy and creeps relentless into the ears and feet of those watching sweeping them up in a wave of sweat soaked euphoria. Bombers are exactly what we need right now and it’s time for some twisted and psychotic doom-punk.
