"Solwave pride themselves on their inability to be categorized, and while this claim has plenty of truth, it’s primarily due to the band’s willingness to experiment with different sounds and genres rather than their making music that’s actually uncategorizable. On their EP, Out Of The Mayhem, the San Francisco quartet maps out a defined space within the pop music spectrum and proceeds to explore
every nook and cranny of it. 'Fire It Up' and 'Voodoo At High Noon' are sweaty arena rock, with titanic drums and omnipresent Hot Fuss synth buzz; “Ride” is a dance-rock rave-up; “Shuffler” is heart-on-sleeve power pop...'Voodoo At High Noon,' sounds like the ‘70s and the ‘00s put in a blender with the lid off."

"With a name like Solwave (pronounced soul-wave) and citing influences from My Morning Jacket to The Killers one can only imagine how this band may sound. It’s groovy, it’s upbeat, it’s got a pop-style to the vocal, but above all, it inspires movement. Cleaning house? Going for a morning jog? Want your guests to dance at your party? This is the band for you. Recently playing a sold-out show at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, and getting various attention from the press, this up-and-coming band has places to go and people to see. Keep your eye on them."
