The Bergen-based quintet Bloody Beach plans to release their second album later this year. Judging from an early excerpt, it should be a delight for all who enjoy bona fide psychedelia.
A story about “an undecisive long-distance love affair”, “Mezcal Letters” is their first song off this upcoming work. It confirms the variety of Bloody Beach’s inspirations, which cover anything that’s got “rock” in its name (pop-, surf-, kraut-, dub-?). And quite probably most other genres as well.
And it’s not only theory. Just in “Mezcal Letters”, they employ more guitars and key instruments than most bands use on their full-length records, while the associations they want you to have while listneing range from Steely Dan and Burt Bacherac to Nigerian funk.
