BEACH RIOT – SINGLE REVIEW

Beach Riot – Slackers 
Beach Riot - Slackers


Release Date: Out Now

Hey. You. Yeah, you. Have you checked out Beach Riot yet? No? Well get a jog on, time’s a-wasting. New single ‘Slackers’ is a great place to hop aboard this seemingly unstoppable freight train that takes less than three minutes to reach its destination. A pounding bass line comes on like one of those instant hangovers – disorientating, aggressive and painful – which, accompanied by the drums leaves you staring in to the near distance and slightly panicked with a sweaty head. By the time guitars hit their stride and the vocals kick in, you are left in no doubt that this is the lost or undiscovered bastard child of Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ and Reuben’s ‘Racecar is Racecar Backwards’ (in my head, albums are adults and singles are their offspring).  The wonky and intense guitar solo keeps the hangover survival theme at front and centre as the grunge-slacker-indie-pop ride reaches a beautiful climax. One to bounce off the walls to, for sure, but watch out for the morning after.
