Bruise is the flipside to the frankly fantastic and song of the year contender (and so soon, too!), Ladybird, by Beach Baby. It rounds out a very impressive debut release for the London-based band. Its lo-fi mask, distorted tape and gauze-filtered guitars are cut through by some heavenly old-time backing vocals, resulting in a cloudy/sunny palette you’ll want to savour for a long time.

Ladybird / Bruise is out next week, March 31st, on B3SCI Records in the US and Chess Club Records in the UK. Buy the vinyl HERE.

Beach Baby are off to France in a couple of nights time, supporting Jungle. After that they have a series of UK dates lined up. Details below.
