The Press

Das Mini Album bietet eingängigen Powerpop mit Punk Attitüde und Sixties Anleihen und teilweise mehrstimmigen Chören, der sofort gute Laune verbreitet und einem bereits beim ersten Hören vertraut vorkommt. (Ox-Fanzine #132)

Musikalisch und textlich ist das hier 1A Power Pop Punk. Alle vier Tracks haben starkes Ohrwurmpotential. Klingt wie: Die RAMONES boxen ABBA um und THE QUEERS zu ihren Bubblegum Dreams Zeiten treten noch rein. (Plastic Bomb #100)

Texte, die sich passend zur Musik in milder Melancholie und relativer Albernheit bewegen. (Trust #194)

Klingt wie kalifornischer Diabetiker-Tod! Zuckersüß, fast andächtig blubbern und sägen sich die mir bis dato Unbekannten durch ihre Werke. (Chelsea’s Choice)

Aaaaalice. You Don’t Know What Hell It Is. Aufhören. Es gehört verboten solche Songs zu schreiben. Echt. Schämt Euch! (TrueTrash)

BEST BOYS ELECTRIC Is A Great Powerpop Band From Bremen, Germany. For Fans Of YUM YUMS, UNDERTONES And THE SWEET. (Monster Zero)

Supermelodisch und dreckig, Bands wie YETI GILRS und PSYCHOTIC YOUTH und die Achtziger Studioplatten der RAMONES sind die Vorlage. (Mind The Gap Fanzine

RAMONES treffen ABBA treffen WEEZER. Alles im schön klebrigem Bubblegum Style. (Bierschinken)

BEST BOYS ELECTRIC Seem All Knowing That Within The Slightly Irritating Sounds, Listeners Will Find Melodies That Really Stick. (…) The Fact That The Overriding Melody Seems To Resemble The Tune Of A Half-Remembered Saturday Morning Cartoon Only Makes It Even Better! (Real Gone Rocks)

Einprägsame Melodien und tolle Gitarrensoli … Mein Fave ist „Alice“, ein wunderschöner Song, der auch im Radio laufen könnte und Airplay verdient. (Underdog Fanzine)

Scharfe Hooks verbinden sich einfallsreich mit melodischen Punk/Pop/Wave/Garage-Delikatessen. Nicht nur symphatisch, sondern auch überzeugend. (Flight 13 Records)

This EP Features 4 Songs On It That Will Present You A Good Powerpop Tunes. Some Bands Like EXPLODING HEARTS, THE SHIVVER, Or MODERNETTES, I Think Thats What You Should Get …  (Radio Hey Ho)

The Podcast Episode I’ve Recorded About BEST BOYS ELECTRIC Is Still One Of The Most Liked By My Listeners. (Pensador Louco)

Mini-Album, Maxi-Spaß! (amazon)

Ihre neue Vinyl-Scheibe dürfte dem Ruhm ordentlich auf die Sprünge helfen. (Weser Kurier)
