Beach Baby: “We’ve kind of found our voice”

Summer’s here, apparently. Time to head to the beach.
Tropical vibes, cocktails at sunset and palm trees a plenty. When it’s these sort of images that come to mind when listening to a band then you know it’s going to be happy days from here on out. For that, Beach Baby have become true pop purveyors, riding enough waves of melody that make the Atlantic seem like toilet residue.

Anchored by co-frontmen Lawrence Pumfrey and Ollie Pash, the pair met while both were at Bristol University before expanding their outfit with the help of bassist Iraklis Theocharopoulos and drummer Josh ‘Shep’ Hodgson. The result is one of the most infectious British guitar bands of the past decade, full of potent pop hooks. It’s a sound many have found tricky to pin down.

“We listen to music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s as well as the 00s – so naturally it all comes together in our own music,” muses Lawrence. “It’s good that you’re not going to be pigeon-holed into a certain decade of music.”
