Beach Fossils is a mixture of European indie with West Coast surf rock. Their newest album What a Pleasure is filled with feel good melodies that flow perfectly with simple guitar riffs and cool lo-fi vocals. It’s not annoyingly pop, yet simple and catchy in a good way. The entire album feels like being on vacation.
The vocals are softly reverberated throughout each song, which at points even brings out a shoegaze feel.
I couldn’t help but bob my head to the swinging guitar strummings of “Calyer”. The guitar pickings sound a lot like The Whitest Boy Alive. Even the vocals in the song “Adversity” reminded me of Kings of Convenience (which has the same guy from Whitest Boy Alive). They have a undeniable European feel; I can picture them doing a take away show anytime soon in the streets of Paris.
