  • Sounds del Mar are a hard-working party band making waves in Austin, TX. Their music combines a 1970s, Thin Lizzy dual-guitar attack with XTC-style vocal harmonies punctuated by warm analog synth tones. They have an undeniable sonic chemistry and their live shows are renown for wild excess and reckless abandon.

    In early 2014, Sounds del Mar began as a quirky side-project compiled of friends who met working as sound engineers. It quickly grew into something more. With roots in Austin-based touring acts (The Gourds, What Made Milwaukee Famous, Dave Dondero, ‘Til We’re Blue Or Destroy), the four-piece have individually played stages at Fun Fun Fun Fest, SXSW, New Orleans Jazz Fest, the Moody Theater, Denver Day of Rock, and ACL Fest. Coming off highly successful Southeast and Midwest tours the band is looking forward to playing Austin City Limits Festival again on October 10th before heading Northeast on tour in support of their recently released debut album Miami Vice’n via Nine Mile Records.

    Miami Vice’n was written, produced, recorded and mixed entirely by Sounds del Mar, with some gear on loan and a little help from friends including their man Alex Lyon, who mastered the album at The Bubble’s brand-new facility.

    • "Party rock quartet envisions Gene Ween drunk on Lone Star fronting the Electric Six." - AUSTIN CHRONICLE
    • "On their newest album Miami Vice’n Sounds Del Mar fuse the testosterone-charged, freewheeling rock and roll of '70s bands like Thin Lizzy with a laid back Austin vibe that is just as suited for a festival as it is for a dive bar." - THE HORN
    • "With dual guitars, spacey synth and pop vocal sensibilities Sounds del Mar seems to have found a winning combination." - AUSTIN CONCERTS EXAMINER
    • "Party jet, anyone? Sounds Del Mar makes fun, groovy rock with a cheeky nod to pre-Y2K music and fashion trends." - LAURIE GALLARDO / KUTX RADIO
    • "Their '70s rock sound is infused with eclectic slices of new wave synths, disco grooves and bluesy guitar riffs. The songs sound fantastic and are ridiculously fun. Let their sonic sunshine help chase away those blues." - SIDE ONE TRACK ONE
    • "Sounds del Mar began as a side-project of friends who met working as sound engineers and it shows in the lush production of their latest album. Their sound is something new and exciting to my ears, I'd call it glam funk. It's fresh, funky and fun rock-and-roll. Where the heck are my platform shoes? I wanna dance!" - POPA'S TUNES
