"Live Review: Engine Summer (3/24) @ Quencher’s Saloon"

Even the most casual music fans in your group will get hooked by the band’s catchy riffs, high energy and character. As for the music lovers you’ll bring with you, they’ll be enamored by how a three-piece can create such a unique sound. - Listen Live and Local

"DEMO 312 – 9.3.17"

New music from Engine Summer... Just groovy, psychedelic sounds there. Very jangly 60s garage rock there. - James VanOsdol (WKQX)

"EP Grab Bag vol. 107"

From Chicago, a band making psychedelic punk... To my hears it is somewhere between new wave, 90s noise rock, psych-pop and a touch of post-rock. I find that a compelling combination, but even if you don't just imagine a more irreverent Gang of Four. Who doesn't want to check that out? - Space Rock Mountain

"Engine Summer - Live Session"

Watching them live makes you want to dance and jump around all while admiring how hard they rock out on stage. - Populous Chicago

"Engine Summer are poised to be indie rock’s new “Trophy Kids”"

Engine Summer has a sound that can only be described as indie. They pull reference from every facet of the term; from their early-aughts Modest Mouse meets Franz Ferdinand vocal delivery to the no-frills, stop before it feels forced approach that they take to songwriting. That’s something that very few bands can pull off, and honestly, it feels refreshing in an age where seven-minute-long songs are something that nobody even blinks an eye at anymore. - Substream Magazine




Gumptious young bucks Engine Summer are an emerging indie trio from Chicago, resonating rock music like Parquet Courts, Omni, & Wire. Playing since mid-2014 and 60+ shows to date, they finally decided to drop a record on Halloween entitled Trophy Kids. With 15 tracks lasting 35 minutes total, the band brings a refreshing "no-frills, stop before it feels forced" take on garage rock, as described by Substream Magazine.
