Beach Day debuts new single “BFFs” via AV Club, tour starts next week

Beach Day leaks another new track, “BFFs”, from the upcoming NATIVE ECHOES. “Recorded in Detroit, the record—and the track—merges garage-style fuzz, Michigan-style grit, and some good old-fashioned foot stomping.” Visit the AV Club for more on BFFs.

Click here to watch “Don’t Call Me on the Phone” video which was recently featured in NPR’s “Heavy Rotation” playlist.

“The Florida duo Beach Day evokes images of summer with doo-wop harmonies and retro-minded riffs on Native Echoes, out August 19. In the nonchalant “Don’t Call Me on the Phone,” singer Kimmy Drake keeps the bad vibes at bay and the phone ringer on silent, complete with pointed messages (“Lose my number! Lose my number!”). Recorded in Detroit, the song is an excellent mash-up of garage rock and ’60s girl-group sounds. Beach Day is as addictive as The Shangri-Las or Best Coast, and “Don’t Call Me on the Phone” ought to have you humming along or trying to mumble the chorus by the time it’s over.” —Ferris O’Brien, KOSU’s The Spy
