[Introducing] Beach Skulls: Baggy Liverpudlian Surf-Pop


Who: Beach Skulls

Where: Liverpool

Why We Care: Surf-Rock has been done to death. The handful of decent bands who make music under its umbrella tend to rely more on its imagery and ethos than its conventions. Beach Skulls are a prime example. While ‘Meet Me At The Beach House’, their most recent track, draws on Beach Boys melodies it is equally indebted to Vampire Weekend and doo-wop. ‘Clear Blue Skies’, conversely, is about as far from the Beach Boys as you can get while wearing Hawaiian shirts. Its dark and lugubrious, drawing on guitar led lethargy, drum machine beats and murmered vocals, “Surf-Rock” it isn’t.

  1. This is a good approach to what, for some, may be a controversial topic. Very well though out post. – Its good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling. – Mark Twain 1835 – 191

  2. Good blog. I got a lot of good data. Ive been keeping an eye on this technology for awhile. Its interesting how it keeps varying, yet some of the core factors remain the same. Have you seen much change since Google made their most recent acquisition in the arena?

  3. Great article. I never thought about the key benefits of disagreeing! Youre right though, that people rarely disagree in a very respectful way. If youre not respectful, chances are that your comment is not approved or deleted.

  4. You can definitely see your skills in the article you write.
    The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid
    to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.
