about

TR041 - Tiny Room Records 2020

BIO
Combo Qazam consists of four early Millennials who grew up in an analog world. Being a kid in the 90s meant that you were taught the importance of creative freedom. Now, as adults in a digital era, they feel ambiguous. The present, global society offers opportunities to break existing structures and celebrate life together. But it is the same society that also causes control and alienation. Combo Qazam is operating on these crossroads of analog and digital, old and new, hope and fear.

You hear this dichotomy throughout the music of Combo Qazam. The band can sound mechanical and human at the same time. Prog-like perfection goes hand in hand with Pavementesque dissonance. Detached lyrics are being sung with heavenly harmonies. The rhythm section was recorded on a 4-track cassette unit, the rest was multi-tracked in Logic Pro. Repetitive beats are leading you through eerie melodies, with hints at postpunk, mathrock, and kraut.

PRESS
Musicmaker: “Well-constructed indie-prog”
3voor12: “Wonderful debut!”
Everything Is Noise: “An overlooked gem full of dreamy, fantastic art rock tunes!”
Louder Than War: "A great sprawling and very itchy rock record”
Here Comes The Flood: “Combo Qazam have come out of the egg as a fully-feathered bird that can fly like a pro”
Subjectivisten: “Music that makes you dream away, music that makes you think and music to just enjoy intensely”
Festivalinfo: “A beautiful balance between hypnotic rhythms, loud postpunk and sometimes calm songs”
3voor12/Utrecht: “A balanced release in which the tight and warm atmosphere is sometimes interrupted by a sudden eruption, but it never becomes too experimental”
WoNo Magazine: “Combo Qazam is technically proficient and able to write songs that make listening to proficiency worthwhile. An album to invest time and money into.”
The Next Gig: “A very successful debut album that feels retro as well as modern”
Radioaktiv: “Harmonious and romantic, with great technical experimentation”
Mpodia: “Good old underground alternative indie”
Timpaan Muziek: “The riffs are cool and the music sounds urgent, modern, while maintaining a nostalgic layer”
