The jangly, self recorded ramblings of Brooklyn’s Dustin Payseur, Beach Fossils offers hauntingly catchy tunes that blend the energy of an impulsive road trip with the melodious wandering of a lucid dream. Sun drenched riffs, kaleidoscopic rhythms and hazy lyrics saturate Beach Fossils’ first release, the album’s carefree vibe is perfectly summed up through song titles such as “Daydream,” “Vacation,” and “Lazy Day.” Now joined by band members John Pena and Sennott Burke (who also plays with Darwin Deez), Beach Fossils turned out to be one of the most talked about acts at this year’s SXSW. Check one of our main highlights as we filmed that some dude's keg party in his house in Austin (alongside Toro Y Moi, Real Estate and more) for one of our favourite Rockfeedback TV pieces ever here. This sees an eagerly anticipated debut UK trip.
“hints at nostalgia that goes deeper and more distant than a few summers past.” - Stereogum
“Dustin Payseur, the man behind Brooklyn band Beach Fossils, seems to be making music for swimming, as his bright guitar licks and floating vocals make him sound like an excellent holdover from last summer’s lo-fi guitar pop bands.”- Prefix Mag
“Listening to the Brooklyn based band Beach Fossils conjures up memories of simpler times…a lo-fi, fuzzy sound punctuated with simple beats and thoughtful lyrics”.Spinner
Formed in a bedroom - an electronic experiment to escape the everyday of the everyday dreams of a more public lifestyle have taken this reverie to an unconventional conclusion - a troupe that incorporates equal parts harmony and dissonance, programing and organic instrumentation, lush harmonies and sparse arrangements. an exploration of pop through a spaced-out, kaleidoscopic lens. Formed in LA earlier this year, Superhumanoids are a hugely exciting new proposition making their first visit over to UK shores. They have recently released a intelligent, genre defying pop EP, full of a pactchwrok of mid 80s British postcard era indie, Prefab Sprout Post Punk and Deerhunter psychedlia. Never derivitive, Superhumanoids are a fantastically original and compelling new group, here appearing as special guests in support of Beach Fossils.
