If you don’t know Beachtape, where the fuck have you been? It’s been a busy few months that’s seen the Brighton boys sign to Swedish greats PNKSLM and announce the release of debut EP Hold Music – and things just keep getting better with the unveiling of their latest single.
‘Slow’ is infectious pop and its absolute finest – woozy and wonderful, hazy and lazy. Beach vibes are aplenty as guitars wobble, drums saunter and mellow vocals call to mind hometown pals The Magic Gang (fitting, as guitarist Kristian Smith produced predecessor ‘Rearranging My Ways’). Don’t be fooled into thinking Beachtape are just another surf-rock newcomer – this bunch are special. Expect more than great things to come.
