hmv's Next Big Thing... #56 Beautiful Bodies

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you pop rockers Beautiful Bodies...

 

Who Are They?

Beautiful Bodies hail from Kansas City, Missouri and consist of singer Alicia Solombrino, guitarist/drummer Thomas Becker and bassist Luis Arana. If one of those names looks familiar it's probably Becker's, he was once part of emo heroes The Get Up Kids and short-lived rockers Gratitude. They're signed to iconic punk label Epitaph and they're currently tearing it up across the UK supporting Mayday Parade. 

 

Who Do They Sound Like?

Their tunes are built round driving riffs and pounding electronics, so the most obvious comparisons is PVRIS, but this is poppier and faster. Imagine classic No Doubt meshed with early Depeche Mode, that's about the size of it. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

They write big, powerful pop rock songs and have choruses for days. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Their debut album Battles is out now and available to preview and purchase on the right-hand side of the page.
