“Days” – Beach Youth
Allow me to introduce a surfy dream-pop band called Beach Youth, they’re from Caen, France (which is on the northern coast). You can tear through their entire collection of songs on soundcloud in less than 12 minutes, then immediately go back to the top and repeat. That’s what I did anyways. They’re songs are all in English, which is nice bc my french is extremely limited (I pretty much only know “omelette du fromage” & “leci n’est pas une pipe”).
It seems as though the mainstream success of bands like Two Door Cinema Club & Phoenix, as well as the current pervasiveness of surf music, has left space for a band to combine the two in an almost dance pop way. Beach Youth may just be that band.
