It’s only been six short months since Beach Baby released their debut single Ladybird. With Limousine, their third single (the sandwich filling here is No Mind No Money) getting its premier from Zane Lowe on Beats 1, it doesn’t take a genius to spot an early career trajectory with a sharp uptick.

And Beach Baby are more than up for the task of meeting expectations: Limousine sees the London-based four-piece coupling their now familiar guitar sound with a pepped-up pace and top, top, top bass work, and I love it. So much so that I don’t mind sharing the strange observation that for a moment or two it makes me think of a speeded-up, but nonetheless on a downer, INXS…

Limousine is out November 13th, via Handsome Dad Records. Before then you can catch Beach Baby on tour in the US and UK (plus Amsterdam).
