Drawing on R&B, southern rock, hard rock and punk, this band has a highly original and dynamic sound that bends genres.
"These guys keep it interesting song by song. You never know what you're gonna get next. I mean it . . . truly original rock and roll." Despie Stiles, Radio Bird

" . . . passionate and powerful if delightfully quirky material from this new Connecticut band." Andrew Markham, Rock & Roll To Save Your Soul (blog)

"Proudly (and maybe necessarily) lo-fi, but the songs and the performances transcend the usual limitations of a DIY release . . . definitely check them out." Nicole Perrini, MODerna (blog)

"WAX EX-STATIC" RELEASED February 23, 2016!

February 23, 2016 - Following on the success of 2014's REPEATER and 2015's RADIO VOODOO: SONGS FROM THE DARK END OF THE DIAL, Catalina Shortwave announced today the release of their third record "WAX EX-STATIC" - a hard-hitting collection of five songs exploring themes of temptation, oppressions, loneliness and life on a dysfunctional planet.  Says frontman Dave Rizzo: "We are really very proud of this record, we feel like we're in full stride.  We never want to make the same record twice, so we pushed the envelope on style and and our themes but made sure the songs were accessible, intelligent and delivered honestly."  The band said that they while they are bringing WAX EX-STATIC to live audiences, they are once again working on new material, which they hope to release later in 2016.
