Track Of The Day :: Beach Skulls - Santa Fe
Words: Ellie Ward
'Santa Fe' is the lead single from Beach Skulls' upcoming debut full-length, 'Slow Grind' - recorded at Liverpool's Parr Street Studios in four days - set for release on April 29 via PNKSLM Recordings on limited edition vinyl and digital.
Formed in Liverpool and now also based in Manchester and Glasgow, 'Santa Fe' is a sublime laid-back slow groove of spacey garage pop, governed by Ry Vieira's sultry vocals and deft guitar hooks. If this is representative of the rest of the album - bring it on.
Originally started in 2011 as the solo project of frontman Vieira, he was later joined by Jordan Finney, and after a trip to Berlin and meeting with Dan West who took on bass duties and completed the line-up.
