For a fairly new band out of North Italy, Bee Bee Sea make noisy headway their second full length album, Sonic Boomerang the follow up to their 2015 self-titled debut. The trio, consisting of Wilson Wilson (vocals/guitar), Giacomo Parisio (bass/backing vocals) and Andrea Onofrio (drums/backing vocals), unleash a fury of punked up psychedelia packed into eight new tracks. The songs are potent with surfy garage riffs, jammy intervals, and fragments of pop.
Bee Bee Sea waste jump in head first on the album's opener and title tracks. A blast of garage-esq rhythm sections come with the drive of fuzzy guitars and massive vocals. The soundscape is heavy and riveting- striking similarities to Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall. A slight element of garage-pop gives Sonic Boomerang an accessible edge- with rays of brightness embedded in bubble-gum hooks of "D.I. Why Why Why," "This Dog Is The King of Losers" and "I Shouted."
Bee Bee Sea are an emerging force in the world of independent music- graduating from their two year stint of Bandcamp releases. Sonic Boomerang is a mish mash of the odd, the gritty, and the buoyant- all jumbled together. They may not exist anywhere near the scale of Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, and The Black Lips, but them a few years. They just might catch up.
