After the release of their self-produced track ‘Arabia’ in November 2015 the Dublin based five-piece slacker-wave band BEACH are about to unveil their latest single titled ‘Donuts.’
Donuts is an affirmation that leaves the listener confused and confounded.
Written in a single day, Dave Barrett says the lyrics are about an “out of body experience I had where I transcended into a spiritual dimension. For quite some time I thought I was dead in the physical world.”
Influences range from Joy Division to Tame Impala. But there is a distinctive flavor and quality here — suggesting that BEACH is competent enough to push sound limits, but not limited to any specific genre.
There are plans for a live visual show and tour later this year. For now though, ‘Donuts’ offers a glimpse into one of the most exciting bands to come out of Ireland in a long time.
We had a listen:
The tappity lethargy and the overall sneer reminds us of the morning after a long night on the tiles.
Creaks and bumps are random and only just the right side of irritating.
The sounds are snivelled out like trolley-wheels greasily trundled on hospital floors… and continue to fill the space with their squeals and irksome rolls.
All this whilst the dozy voice rambles around incoherently.
Warning: Do not try any of this at home! Listen only if you are intoxicated — or high … Preferably both.
