Hailing from Portland, OR., the EXPLODING HEARTS are known far and wide for their white denim pop style and energetic live shows! With the songwriting charm and guitars of early brit pop/invasion bands like the UNDERTONES and the JAM, the romance of pop legends like NICK LOWE, the energy and attitude of great power pop/punk acts like the BUZZCOCKS and the BOYS, and the beat and soul of early Motown/Stax groups, they create their very own unique sound which is 100% POP. NO Pac Man or Atari gimmicks here, just footstomping beats, great songs, and loud Rickenbacker guitars! So if you like the BRIEFS and go crazy for traditional 70's power-pop, you will certainly fall on your knees and praise the birth of a new teenbeat sensation, the mighty EXPLODING HEARTS.
