Beach Baby’s party is an unmissable one. And the water is definitely hot.
Remember when artists remaster, redo or simply relegate some of the defining tracks that first grabbed people’s attention? Levels of success are like a seesaw — yet in the case of Beach Baby it seems to be a perfect telling of a story we’ve seen coming for a while now.
'U R' was a blissful, serene glide through open air on a hot summer’s night and marked the Londoners as true bonafide indie svengalis in waiting. 'U R' Mark II is a statement of intent from a band full of confidence, swagger and everything in-between with a hook that’s more of a knock-out than ever before. Bolstered by choppy guitars and harmonies that would sit on any Beach Boys record (and we’re not talking about Mike Love Beach Boys either), it’s a masterful slice of a future delicacy we’re all going to be chomping on all summer long.
Throwing your cares away has never sounded so pure, like if you were told to “Paint your nails and chew your gum, walk into the setting sun” then you really would have no choice after being crooned and swept into the warm embrace of Beach Baby. Set for a huge 12 months, it’s a welcome time to check in and see that these chaps are well on course to be the soundtrack of the indie-summer.
Croon, dream and dive in - Beach Baby’s party is an unmissable one. And the water is definitely hot.
