Today, our new music spotlight is on Beachtape 

Location: Brighton

Line-up: Rory Sear (vocals/guitar), Leo Kenyon (drums), Andy Kemp (vocals, bass)

About: Brighton, UK trio Beachtape, the project of Rory Sear, Leo Kenyon and Andy Kemp, made their debut last fall with Hold Music EP. This was followed by a double A-sided 7″ Fix It Up/Figure It Out, which shows off Beachtape’s melodic yet fuzzy take on indie rock, straddling the middle ground between hazy beach pop. Their latest single release is the delectable Somebody Like Hugh. 

What Hidden Herd Say: Kicking off with an energetic tempo, ‘Somebody Like Hugh’ captures both sides of Beachtape’s undeniable charm; hazy, melancholic lows and raucous, expressive highs.

For fans of: The Pixies, Weezer and Pavement
