Hammer Mammals is a band based in Phoenix, Arizona, founded by Matthew Saling. Hammer Mammals music is heavily influenced by surf music, 60's garage rock, indie R&B, and anything with a healthy dose of reverb. The result is a unique and captivating desert surf vibe with a haunting quality.
The band's name was inspired by a conversation overheard during a bike ride, a favorite hobby of Matthew, about strong cyclists who don't shave their legs. This reminded him of the rebellious spirit of 60's hot-rodders and surfers. It embodies Hammer Mammals attitude towards "Dirt Surfing", Gravel Cycling and Mountain Biking, on dirt roads and tracks.
Hammer Mammals draws inspiration from legendary artists such as Link Wray, Calexico, The Lively Ones, The Black Flamingos, Bloodshot Bill, Satan's Pilgrims, Nick Waterhouse, and Holly Golightly, among others. They have crafted a sound that is truly their own, making their music the perfect soundtrack for riding down a dirt road or catching a wave on a sunny day.
With a growing fanbase and an infectious sound, Hammer Mammals is poised to take the world by storm. So lose yourself in the reverb and get ready to ride the waves with Hammer Mammals!
