Punky Power-Pop New Wave Indie Rock
When We Met has been described as "punky power pop" & "new wave indie rock". Compared to bands such as: Devo, The B52's, Sonic Youth, The Pixies, No Doubt and Modest Mouse.
Don't be fooled by the fact they are a duo with a cute name. When We Met has a big sound for two people and likes to rock out, bringing high energy performances to the stage.
"When We Met is a stand out favorite of mine in the new wave, alternative, & experimental genres of recent. This was the first full set I had the chance of seeing them and they were mind bogglingly good” - Lysergic Sound Department
"Their chemistry was infectious and their sound highly energetic, often danceable, a mix of late 80’s New Wave and mid 90’s Indie Rock. Both of them shared vocal duties and sang about everything from women’s rights to their own personal demons." - Freeform Portland
"This Portland, OR, duo brings that great new wave/punk touch in a manner similar to the B-52’s and DEVO with that Pixies attitude thrown in. Get off your ass and dance your blues away." - Audio Fuzz
