Fresh from Denver, CO, where they perform regularly in the downtown area, Nate Fuller (lead Vocals, lead guitar), Keenan Clarke (drums, backup vocals), and Trevor James (bass), have known each other since high school and credit this tenured relationship with—what I’d like to suggest—is a fairly obvious musical chemistry.
Influenced by artists such as Wavves and Fidlar, this young trio has previously recorded several other projects, including, 2016’s Scratch My Way to Heaven, and 2017’s Beach Sounds, as well as a host of other singles. Their new single, Beach Pop—which was recorded at The Spot Studios in Lakewood, Colorado—holds true to its predecessors in that it does not fail to entertain.
“I never tried to be the knives that you’re throwing.”
–Backseat Vinyl, Beach Pop
An anthemic ode to millennial apathy and indecision, Beach Pop opens with a grimy bass line, lo-fi percussion, a seriously distorted guitar riff, and Fuller’s vocal jig—which wanders creatively, though never trips off-key. The song then—quite literally—explodes into a synth-infused, Killer-esque, razzle-dazzle that fills your headphones with a wall of angsty, sarcastic, pop-rock spectacularness. (I said, god damn, this is a good song!)
I highly recommend going beyond this song and checking out Backseat Vinyl’s library of music. These guys throw down with sharp, catchy riffs, simple & clever melodies, and razor sharp production. It’s really, really solid stuff.
90’s era Green Day makes a record with The Killers. (Yup, that’s right.)
