The Submarines' 'Love Notes/Letter Bombs' Out Today; Tour Kicks Off April 7!

Love Notes/Letter Bombs, the third studio album from LA-based indie pop duo The Submarines, is out today and the love is pouring in!  Check out what some of the critics are saying:

"'...the richest, most fully realized Submarines album to date, brimming over with little psychedelic flourishes...and throbbing electronic textures—but more importantly, some of the duo’s prettiest melodies..." -- Metromix (4/5 stars)

"And that’s the Submarines’ secret appeal: They specialize in the sneaky juxtaposition of dark thoughts over bright hooks. Rarely does postmillennial pop music sound so energetic and balanced in its contradictions."

"...the music's dichotomies combine to create something beautiful and whole."
Nylon Magazine

"...the band's technological sheen and handclap beats are still in place, but an injection of live drumming and studio experimentation provides more room for the expectedly sweet melodies to breathe." -- LA Times Pop & Hiss
