Beachtape are Brighton-based indie foursome – Andy, Dan, Leo & Rory – whose sound is marked by an exploration and seemingly unpretentious love for 90’s nostalgia.
Beachtape’s output thus far is littered with utterly lovable fuzzed-up jams, heavy on the catchy melodies and fuzzy guitars, and straddling the worlds of Pavement, Weezer and The Pixies. The band’s latest single ‘Somebody Like Hugh’ follows suit, resplendent in it’s lo-fi fuzzy glory. An irresistible delight of infectious, fuzz-fuelled indie; crunchy guitars, meaty basslines, crashing cymbals and catchy chorus abound amid warm layers of fuzz and distortion as sweetly melodic hushed vocals float above. ‘Somebody Like Hugh’ is sweet, laid-back and richly melodic as it purrs along on the right side of familiar – it is an absolute joy.
