In The Press

  • 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
  • Emily Manning, i-D.VICE

    “Produced by Jeff Saltzman (The Killers’ Hot Fuss) and mixed by Eric Broucek (The Drums and Classixx),  Soaked douses a little dream pop on the band’s punched-up garage riffs.”

    - Emily Manning, i-D.VICE
  • Brontë Martin, Earmilk

    “With a playful sophistication, Hot Flash Heat Wave remind us of The Drums‘ strong pop mentality and Smith Westerns‘ slacker attitude.”

    - Brontë Martin, Earmilk
  • Robin Murray, Clash

    “The band’s songwriting – lucid synth pop, fragrant electronics – is pieced together with lyrics that speak of real life experience.”

    - Robin Murray, Clash
  • Alex McCown-Levy, A.V. Club

    “[Be Calm Honcho] delivers in a big way. It’s the kind of song [Bad Man] that’s meant for staring out the window, pondering the big things, and hoping everything will be okay tomorrow.”

    - Alex McCown-Levy, A.V. Club
