We've known each other for a time longer than we
care to admit. Throughout the years, we've had the great
fortune to support some incredibly talented artists on stage
and in the studio. Along the way we've written songs that
were recorded by some major artists, with some tracks finding
their way into films and TV.
What's most important to us
is the music that we're creating now. We spent the past
few years writing and recording our first record as a band
titled 'Human Error.' We enlisted some of our friends to
help us make the record, all of whom we'll be forever indebted
for their wonderful contributions. We hope that you can
take some time out of your busy day to give a listen and
pass forward if you dig it 'Human Error' was Recorded and Produced by the band

Dean Sciarra Review
'Human Error' by Electric Blue Waves
Electric Blue Waves' first release,
'Human Error' is an amalgamation of iconic influences. The
'70s romance of the Hemi-revved Springsteen streets of the
Jersey shore and the lush palm tree lined Beach Boys boulevards
of L.A. are not foreign landscapes in these tunes. Their
cynical slant meshes with an optimistic lean in a fascinating
meld of emotion on tunes like "Goodbye Cruel World" and
'Human Error' while their innermost imaginings of love and
promise come shining through on "It's Your Energy,"
all done with pitch perfect harmonies throughout and stand-up
rock grooves that excite and demand repeated plays.
Their dark but softer side is
executed flawlessly as well on "Bad Man" with its raspy
Tom Waits-like vocals atop moody instrumentation that goes
down like brown sugar. "Long Distance Man" poignantly
evokes the frustration of separation in a gritty, dark,
slow blues with strings, horns and slide guitar. Fond memories
of a better America translate into "The Promise"
in its 'tell it like it is' lyrics alongside "God &
Country" as a call-to-arms for those who still care
about the values that made this country what it is - or
was. Beatles influences abound on "True," a pure
love song which partners well with the Brian Wilson bounce
of "Happy Skies" From start to finish, this first
effort from Electric Blue Waves is not only a masterful
piece of work, it is a welcome and long overdue addition
to any true music lover's library.
"Electric Blue Waves' first release, 'Human
Error' is an amalgamation of iconic influences. Springsteen
streets to Beach Boys boulevards, Electric Blue Waves takes
us down roads that are at once familiar, daring and impressive.
A classic work of art!" - ClassicMusicVault.com
