In The Press

  • Mike Oliger, The Wild Honey Pie

    “Oakland-based, brother/sister-led quintet The Tambo Rays play a sweeping brand of sun-soaked pop rock that exemplifies the vintage appeal of golden-era Blondie while falling within the same symphonic spectrum as modern indie pop acts like the Shout Out Louds.” 

    - Mike Oliger, The Wild Honey Pie
  • Bandcamp

    “Hot Flash Heat Wave have made a glowing record about moving on—a rare album that sighs with wistfulness while still having fun.”

    - Bandcamp
  • Wonderland

    “Mirroring the upbeat sound, the video is full of fun filled psychedelic imagery shot in an East Oakland warehouse. Exhibiting some of front-woman Sara DaMert’s wildly catchy dance moves, the uplifting video reflects the positive pop-rock feel of the upcoming EP.”

    - Wonderland
  • Self-titled Mag

    “Hot Flash Heat Wave switch gears from garage rock to dream pop on SOAKED.

  • Chris Deville, Stereogum

    “They’re a pop-rock band who would have hit my Strokes/Weezer/Phantom Planet sweet spot back in 2002 (I mean that as a major compliment) and who are giving me pleasant memories of that era 15 years later.”

    - Chris Deville, Stereogum
  • Jessie Schiewe, SF Weekly

    “The band is led by saccharine-voiced Sara DaMert, who lends a cherubic, innocent feel to the Tambo Rays’ bubbly, indie-pop jams.”

    - Jessie Schiewe, SF Weekly
