EightBomb

Artist

EightBomb has a chequered musical history. The band was formed under its current name as early as in 2005, but soon disbanded only to re-emerge again in 2008. In 2015, when the band was rapidly gaining international visibility, Louwrens Jordaan – Lou – songwriter, guitarist and the driving force behind the group – suffered a fatal heart attack. Despite the terrible shock and emotional void left by his death the guys refused to let all the efforts they had channelled into the project come to nothing. With their signature and propulsive sound, a blend of traditional rockabilly and original garage, EightBomb continue to resist categorisation. Labelled alternatively a (neo)rockabilly or a psychobilly band, the artists see themselves as a rock ’n’ roll collective whose motto “original not traditional” runs through all their albums.
