VULTURE Magazine (Melb) - Oct 2012
" Bonafide beach chillers Band of Frequencies are back with a new album, tour and a slew of accolades tucked neatly under their suntanned arms. True to their coastal heritage, their latest album Rise Like The Sun, released October 8th this year, is a like a stoned rollercoaster of music; rolling up and down, drifting through blues, rock, roots and psychedelic vibes."

SURFING WORLD
BAND OF FREQUENCIES - at the Soundlounge Currumbin by Tim Baker (2010)

" There are plenty of accomplished musicians out there. But only a few manage to attain a state where they become a finely tuned antennae to swirling cosmic forces, channelling unseen spiritual energies and transforming a live music performance into a transcendental experience. I know, I’m gushing, but I just happen to believe Band of Frequencies and their other-worldly frontman are that good. Catch them if you can."

Tim Baker (Surfing World Magazine)

"Prepare to have your musical thirst quenched. Byron Bay's Band of Frequencies dabbles in the whole pallet of musical genres; Bluesy rock drips away into skull-melting lullabies that pitter-patter like rain into jazz-fusion grooves that inevitably wander off somewhere else altogether."

Travis Ferre (SURFING Magazine, USA)








FREE AGAIN - SINGLE REVIEW (May 2011)
BY DANIELLE LLOYD from Tsunami Magazine

"Sonic shorelines ripple with cosmic forces out into the corners of your mind...unseen spiritual waves transform the usual music experience into a dream of Otherworldly delights...This is what you experience when you listen to Band Of Frequencies and their new Free Again EP. Conjuring a sonic realm that celebrates the past, present and future; this is a band that crosses genres and expectations all at once, floating into blues territory with roots, rock, reggae and the psychedelic colouring sound in varying textures. Shannon “Sol” Carroll leads the band with guitar and vocals; OJ Newcomb is a phenomenal bass player who brings a deep resonating groove to the band, whilst Mark Henman‟s beats play with your mind in an extra sensory experience that has the trio delivering a dose of chemistry akin to a Woodstock encounter. Title track „Free Again‟ shatters the preconceived notions of life, encouraging you to follow your passion and the road less travelled; it‟s a song that evokes Jimi Hendrix in an original and meaningful way. Highly anticipated album "Rise Like The Sun‟ is due for release late 2011 – early 2012, with a tour for Free Again happening right now. "Freedom‟ was created by Richie Havens who graced the stage of Woodstock in those few days of music and love; in this version BOF have captured the original ethos in a song tinged with 60‟s beauty and free flowing psychedelic revelry, that demands you close your eyes and go where the music takes you."

“Cyrus Sutton and I are S-T-O-K-E-D to be working with Band of Frequencies, their music crosses all genres in a very effective way. Sol Carroll’s guitar tones are the sh*t and their futuristic live audio / visual shows tie it all together with the audience. Equally as important, the first time I met these guys it felt like we were old friends--these are the kind of guys I like to surf and drink pints with!“

Michael McFadin, co-founder Ubiquity Records www.ubiquityrecords.com


"Rocking a mind blowing mix of blues, reggae and jazz are Byron Bay's Band of Frequencies."

Rave magazine.





"Thank you brothers for your love and inspiration! To find kindred sonic bredren like you fullas is indeed a blessing. Arohanui."

"You guys were one of the best live acts seen in Noosa ever, so thank you for your awesome sets and sounds."

Georgie Hannon USM events


"The Band of Frequencies are a collective of musicians hailing from Byron Bay, Australia whose heavy grooving tapestry of rock, soul and ambient acoustics explore the inner-most reaches of the sonic realm."

Cyrus Sutton film maker www.underthesunsurfmovie.com





"Kicking off with bluesy grooves that will have your body moving like an interpretive dancer, the album gradually melts into soothing, zen-like instrumentals from a parallel universe. The Culmination is a 38 minute exploration into the utterly soothing, featuring 'rastas' salad bowl hung drum."

BAND OF FREQUENCIES - BIO

With an ethos of freedom from any limitations, Band of Frequencies draw their influences from a vast spectrum of roots, rock, reggae, soul, electronic and psychedelic styles to create their own expression. The band coined the phrases Free Soul & Cyclonic Sonics to describe their intentions to "allow the present moment to evolve into a sound future while reflecting a deep respect for all who have come before us." It’s this spirit that resonates within passionate music lovers who have embraced their sound. It's this essence that has lead to invitations to grace the stages of diverse festivals, at home and abroad, and record soundtracks to several internationally released surf films.

Band of Frequencies are often also joined by guest musicians including environmentalist, free surfer and close friend Dave Rastovich who's melodic percussion and cosmic array of instruments bring a welcome addition to the group. Shannon and Dave recently featured in 'The Present', a highly acclaimed surf film by renowned Californian filmmaker Thomas Campbell (Sprout, The Seedling) in a trip to West Africa where they recorded music with local griot musicians and surfed some incredible waves.

In September 2011 Band of Frequencies toured California supporting the non- profit organisation ‘Surfers for Cetaceans’ as part an ocean awareness campaign called the TransparentSea Voyage USA, contributing there skills by writing, recording & uploading 23 songs in 23 days. Other guest artists featured on the voyage were Angus Stone, Isabel Lucas, Chris Del Moro, Denny Arberg & Tristan Prettyman. The voyage was very successful in bringing attention to the amazing local Environmental organizations on the Californian coast fighting to preserve ocean life & its intricate ecosystems.

The tour also lead to the Band of Frequencies being invited to perform on the North Shore, Hawaii as part of the Triple Crown Surfing events for Billabong, the major sponsor of TransparentSea Voyage USA.

A highlight being a run of shows on the shore of the famous ‘Banzai’ Pipeline as the finals were taking place for the Billabong Pipe Masters.
