about

"The light, catchy melodies will go perfectly with the summer energy we long for all year, and the melancholy subject matter accurately captures the season’s bittersweet, nostalgic tinge" - Seattle Weekly

"You could go through this EP song by song and try to list off where the organic sounds flourish and where the music is an electronic fabrication, but part of the disorientation and illusion of Eastern Souvenirs is not knowing which is which where one ends and another begins" - Secretly Important

"...intricate, percussive music with guitar, synthesizers and a variety of percussion instruments from around the world. It’s the kind of stuff that typically has fans of Talking Heads and the Feelies creaming in their art school shorts" -Nada Mucho

"Beirut-esque shoe-gaze? Sounds too good to be true, we know, but Seattle based Eastern Souvenirs, is making it a reality. Born from a wide array of instruments brought home from trips abroad, the project has a uniquely relaxing yet invigorating sound." -The Wild Honey Pie

"The sound is decidedly percussive, feeling distantly European against American indie rock guitar lines. It's the push and pull of cultures that makes Eastern Souvenirs such an interesting concept" - PreAmp Blog

The songs weave layered nylon-stringed guitars, synths, and esoteric percussion loops to create a sound that plays with the conventions of electronic and indie pop. The result is sonically transportive, thriving on the push and pull of foreign and familiar. ... more
