hmv's Next Big Thing... #190 BEACH RIOT
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you brash London foursome BEACH RIOT...
Who Are They?
BEACH RIOT came together in 2017 and consist of guitarist/singer Rory O’Connor, guitarist Cami Menditeguy, bassist Jimmi Suza and drummer Jonny Ross. After a series of excellent singles and support slots with Blackwaters and DZ Deathrays, the band are now signed up with uber cool label Killing Moon Records, home of Fizzy Blood and She.
They have just enjoyed their first big summer of festivals and are working on new music.
What Do They Sound Like?
The foursome merge the howling guitars of early Queens Of The Stone Age, the sludgy grooves of Mudhoney and the powerful melodies of Bleach era Nirvana.
Why Should I Be Excited?
They mix big melodies with enormous guitars, the result is a pure power.
Can I Hear Something?
For sure. You can hear their piledriver of a new single 'Serial Scruff' below...
