“Icelandic-Brightonian three-piece with the attitude of New York punks and pizazz of disco queens” -
“New single ‘Somebody’ is a well-oiled machine worthy of the Strokes but performed with the righteous indignation of Bikini Kill...snappy, punk-informed rock‘n’ roll.” -Stereogum

"a band that have grafted their way to the forefront of London’s music scene with incessant gigging and impassioned live shows. A mixture of venomous and calculated, hypnagogic and filthy, it’s hard to think of the last time a band sounded this fully formed on their first release." So Young Magazine
Underwater Boys is Tom & Nick Klar - two brothers who make dreamy, fuzzy pop music in brighton. Drawing influence from Cocteau Twins, Beach House, The Cure, & Tame Impala, their sound is characterised by Tom's sweet, otherworldly falsetto, and multi-instrumentalist Nick's woozy, ethereal soundscapes.
While on the surface an Underwater Boys song might sound bright and blissed out, their music is also bubbling with anxiety and tension, with lyrical themes of mental illness, existential dread and malaise. This dichotomy is at the heart of what Underwater Boys do. It is joyful, celebratory music about battling with the darkest parts of yourself - being vulnerable, and trying to get better.
