mean, come on??!! www.localmusicnow.com

"The angelic bombs have a sound reminiscent of early U2 or R.E.M.

Conceived in Brooklyn in a flurry of musical passion and instant friendship in 2004, The Angelic Bombs quickly secured a prime residency at The Delancey, a hot new New York City indie rock venue. They have since gigged around the East Coast, blasting fans with highly honed, unpredictable musical experiences that entertain, lift the spirit and make a person lose oneself for awhile.

Though their brazen, tough, indie-rock feel stems from influences like Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, The Clash, The Pixies, Modest Mouse, and X; their sound is entirely unique. This is mainly due to having 2 distinct lead singers and an eclectic rhythm section.

Their triumphant, angry, and often darkly vulnerable lyrics can embolden the listener one moment, and disarm them the next.
