No Echo is hosting an advance stream of Cave Pop: Dance Songs For Primitive People, the ultra-catchy new EP from Jersey City, New Jersey melodic punk band CYCLONE STATIC, ahead of its release this Friday on Mint 400 Records.

CYCLONE STATIC whips around like a punk rock storm, throwing sparks and bursts of melodic energy. Their sound draws from late-1970s punk, mid-1980s hardcore, and early-1990s alternative rock, boiling their influences down into raw, uninhibited music that captures their independent spirit and DIY ethos. The band has performed with punk legends including Dead Boys, The Vibrators, Scream, and Agent Orange, and opened shows for Red Aunts, Piebald, Local H, and more. Their debut album, From Scratch, featured songs that surged to life with waves of crashing guitar and percussion, pulled into focus by a deep undercurrent of emotion.

With Cave Pop: Dance Songs For Primitive People, CYCLONE STATIC guitarist/vocalist James Salerno, drummer Jonathan LeVine, and current bassist John Mathias expand on their signature sound, delivering four infectious, honest songs with a sturdy backbone of rhythm, ready to pack the dance floor. Cave Pop: Dance Songs For Primitive People was recorded and engineered by Corey Zack at The Cocoon, mixed and mastered by Stuart Richardson at Rocky Water Studios, and completed with art and design by Orion Landau.

Jonathan LeVine writes, “With this four-song EP we bring more power and heaviness to our songs than our last LP. We have also stumbled into new territories that seemingly scratch the surface of new cross-genres. Caution – you may be compelled to shake your ass to these rockers.”

Adds No Echo with the exclusive EP stream, “…they mine influence from such seminal punk bands as Agent Orange, The Vibrators, and Dead Boys… there’s also a strong power pop energy coursing through the material.”
