Beach Fossils - What a Pleasure EP

by Kezia Coleman Rating:7 Release Date:2011-02-22

Beach Fossils have abandoned the fractional lo-fi sound of their What a Pleasure EP, leaving rich and wholesome vibes. The minute long opening track, 'Moments', is a gentle lyric-less introduction. It flows perfectly into the title track, which contains jangly Drums-esque guitar, and dream pop vocals. It sets the tone for the rest of the EP.

All of the tracks have an air of nostalgia, which Jack Tatum (Wild Nothing) favors, making him the perfect collaboration partner on 'Out of the Way'. 'Distance' and 'Calyer' pick up the pace a little. They possibly serve as a reminder that you are not listening to one long composition. In spite of this, it's still easy to forget, making this an EP of wistful background music.

The Brooklyn band have managed to craft a charming soundtrack to a still summer daybreak.
