The jangly intro of Bed‘s ‘Girl’ recalls The Pixies in truly respectful form. The Portland group’s style resonates with eclectic rock lovers across the genre, offering the same heartening intimacy seen from Alex G as well as the meatier, gritty boy/girl offerings of The Kills. Sierra Haager’s cooing vocals do well to juxtapose a beefy baseline, giving the track an enticing depth and noticeability.
Bed‘s nostalgic style still hits as hard today as it did in decades past, showing the resilience of the genre throughout the ages. Whether you’re enjoying the hazy, sun-kissed memories of the songs of your youth, or finding alt-rock for the first time, there’ something here for everyone.
