Dublin band Beach have so far released songs of disparate styles that could be psychedelic, experimental and alternative rock.

Running through their music is a thirst for exploration in sonics and in shows with A/V a big part of their performance.

New song ‘Bram Toker’ brandishes those characteristics on a song that pulses with dark creeping atmosphere. Reverbed in the night, singer Dave Barrett sings in a deep baritone “I’ve done it all on my own to find a way,
 Feels like I’ve dropped from a million miles away.”

A video for the song by in-house visual artist Ross Ryder (who is responsible for this Yonen video) is forthcoming.

Catch Beach’s immersive Live A/V show at Whelans, Dublin May 12th & The Islington, London, May 18th.

Beach Are:

Dave Barrett – Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar

Adrain Garvey- Drums

Simon Flynn- Synth

Jack Hitchcock- Bass

Alex Conway-Lead Guitar

Ross Ryder- Visuals

As was announced last year, Knockanstockan is on a fallow year in 2017 but the organisers couldn’t help themselves in doing something around the time.

Instead, they’re planning a series of gigs around the country and first up:

May 12 in Whelan’s with Farah Elle, Robocobra Quartet, Beach, New Secret Weapon and one more to be revealed.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday 24th of March at 9am. Limited early bird tickets will be €10 and after that general price will be €12.50 (prices excl booking fee)

New Dublin five-piece Beach (Dave Barrett, Alex Conway, Adrian Garvey, Bernard Kavanagh, Simon Flynn) drop some sweet psychedelic indie crossed with vocals that sound like Steve Mason as the song develops. There’s an Eastern feel to the track as suggested by the title. That artwork is great too. It’s by Ross Ryder. Exotic.

Beach play The Grand Social on November Saturday 21st and are having a Psychedelic Circus to celebrate with visuals by Slipdraft. The single can be got here.

Here’s the B-side too:
