Beach Day come from a surreal place they call Hollyweird, Florida (actually Hollywood, but the nickname seems to fit). The retro aesthetic of their hometown seems to have left quite an impression on the trio, whose music embodies the same sort of sunny pop as girl groups of the 50’s and 60’s. Capturing as much of their live vibe in the studio as possible — both on their records and in this session — the band proves that, though their surroundings and inspiration may seem frozen in time, their music is very much alive.
Featured song: “Beach Day”
Beach Day 7” is available now from Kanine Records.
