“Loping riffs, DIY production, and searing vocals, the four-piece has that innate sense of cool that runs through Stephen Malkmus, or Josh Homme, even.” – Clash Music
“A wonderfully scuzzy slice of energy-fuelled garage rock” – Gigslutz
“Keep this band on your radar!” – It’s All Indie
Since the start of the year, Beach Riot have been pretty busy. After a couple incredibly successful shows both in Brighton and at prime London venues such as The Finsbury and Camden Assembly, they then went international for their first time and flew all the way to Paris, where they played at Le Trusker – alongside Mice On Mars and Jelly Fish. On the wave of the momentum they are creating, they are now ready to release a brand-new single called “Serial Scruff”, out today.
So far, the unique sound of the band has received quite a big support online, from blogs such as Punktastic, which premiered Beach Riot’s previous single ‘She’s a Hurricane’, Gigslutz, It’s All Indie and Vents Magazine. Their single ‘Slackers’, had the music video premiered on Clash. We can only expect another great tune from this band.
Beach Riot is a fuzzy four-piece consisting of Rory O’Connor (guitar/vocals), Cami Menditeguy (guitar/vocals), Jim Faulkner (bass/vocals) and Jonny Ross (drums). With members split from Brighton and London, the band shares a mutual love for making a lot of pop fuelled noise that lives and breathes on the live circuit. The quartet’s DIY nature asserts as a distorted haze compiled with big hooks and a distinctive raw energy that’s incredibly current. All of this attends to an underground scene that is brimming with fuzzy pop. Taking influences from the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Cable, Sleater-Kinney and Pavement, their sound is brash and untamed.
Serial Scruff is available to download and stream here.
