Beaches – new single and album launch tour!


Beaches_LP_PinkMID

Sprawling Melbourne psych-rock quintet Beaches reveal new single Send Them Away, and announce launch dates for their second album She Beats, due out on Chapter Music on May 3.

Gorilla Vs Bear premiered crazily catchy new single Send Them Away today. Click here to check it out!

It’s been five years since debut album Beaches, which was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize and made it into 2010 book 100 Best Australian Albums. In the intervening years, the band have toured the US twice, played All Tomorrow’s Parties at the invitation of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, released an EP for NYC label Mexican Summer, shared stages with the likes of Roky Erickson, Deerhunter and Wooden Shjips, and even celebrated the birth of beautiful twin daughters to guitarist Alison Bolger.

But a second album was always on the cards. For She Beats, Beaches have once again joined forces with producer Jack Farley (Twerps, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding). And like its predecessor, the album reflects a love for 60s pop, 70s psych, shoe-gaze, prog, southern boogie and Krautrock. But She Beats is bigger, bolder and more ambitious than the debut.

Teaser track Distance, one of two on the album to feature German guitar icon Michael Rother (Neu, Harmonia), emerged last month and has already racked up more than 30,000 Soundcloud plays. Tracks like Out Of Mind, Runaway and new single Send Them Away are upfront, glorious pop. Elsewhere, Veda sees the band extending hypnotically eastward, while droning cello scrapes introduce Tanzanite. All up, She Beats is rich, confident and layered, a multi-dimensional sonic world to get lost in over and over again.
