Le Boom is the name of two bands.
1. Chris and Aimie are two young Irish friends making noise in the Irish and US live scene.
LE BOOM's late-night shows are a frenzy of glass-bottle beats, layered loops, catchy vocal hooks and sweaty fans who dance like no other fans in the world.
LE BOOM's only release, What We Do, received airplay on both US and Irish radio. It featured in TV and ad campaigns including one for Absolut Vodka.
2. Le Boom is an indie band from Denver, Colorado known for its upbeat and danceable rock/pop music. It was the brainchild of lead singer and songwriter, Maylyn Martinez, and was formed in 2004 when she and lead guitarist Kyle Loving separated from their former band, Doozer. They completed their new lineup by uniting with bass player Dave F. Moore and drummer Tyler Dokken.
The band released its first album, Got It Tied, in 2004, which immediately received a Critic’s Choice endorsement from Westword Magazine, a weekly Denver periodical. Le Boom has played in numerous Colorado venues, as well as many outside the state, and as a result has built up a dedicated following. Their most visible gig was a performance at Denver’s Gothic Theater in April of 2005 which was filmed and broadcast on Denver’s Heartbeat, a cable TV show about Denver area bands. According to Sherry Lee, Executive Producer of Denver’s Heartbeat, Le Boom was the most popular band ever to appear on the show.
The band is currently working on a second album due for completion at the end of 2006 or beginning of 2007.
