Agent Octopus is an East Coast quartet comprised of former members of the hard driving "Reverb Galaxy" and the surf traditionalist "Atomic Bumz" focusing on melodic, post 90s surf instrumentals. Pipeline Magazine’s review of their 2019 Blue-Eyed Surf CD said Agent Octopus “plays a unique blend of the melodic European style of surf delivered with a clean reverb surf flourish” (pp). Yeah that may be true, but live they mix it up with lots of reverb soaked glissando, pounding drums which swell around beautiful guitar lines played with passion.
Lead guitar duties are shared by Art Svrjcek and Jim Colby which gives the band an almost Beatle-esque sound. Their next cd planned for post Covid 2021 will focus on Spy vs Surf.
