We were given a beach ball as an office gift today, so it seems more than appropriate that we listen to a shiny new 7” by Beach Baby. Making music in the overwhelmingly ubiquitous genre of jangly indie pop, you probably know enough about their sound already: with a voice as bright and assured as Mac Demarco’s and guitars as sleekly toned as a bank’s On Hold music, this is bound to chill you into nothingness.
To their credit, Beach Baby are a fine band, even if they don’t spark original thought. “No Mind No Money” subtly transfigures its verses into choruses with a glorious bit of guitar riffing, threading a needle between different solos and string bends. The groove is impenetrable and the band do well to peel back parts of the song for dramatic effect, restraining the guitar to let it unwind harder. “U R” follows suit: it’s a tight, compacted pop song that sounds like sunshine, but I’m drawn to the little details of “No Mind” more -- it manages to combine harmonies, guitar showmanship and blaring synths into a song that never once feels busy. Good stuff.
