Biography

The Bohemian Embassy are difficult to pigeon-hole and many have made futile efforts but nobody yet succeeded in coming up with something that satisfies enough to stick. Whatever you think they sound like, you may have heard them described as anything from frenzied to modern day glam, but to clarify things for those of you that have yet to hear their sound, they write catchy, rock indie pop music, with a hint of punk and sometimes folk. In my mind, this band has created a scene of its own with its very own fashion, its own tastes and its own music; personally I think what they create sounds very David Bowie, Smashing Pumpkins, Primal Scream, Pixies, Dandy Warhols, Secret Machines, but then this is only about 5% of what i think they sound like, because they sound like everything and nothing… really, it’s up to you.
The tracks on the CD are great, well thought through, and well produced. Moving from a drum driven track such as ‘sex appeal’ to something as fair as ‘have you read the words’. A great thing about this album is its diversity, and its unpredictability; in an age where commercial music is blurred and greyed by blandness, unoriginality and eleven-track pieces of albums that run one song into the next as though its the same thing. In contrast, this album manages to portray itself as both, somewhat exotic, though comforting and homely.
