I just subscribed to Flying Vinyl, a project that delivers 5 7 inch singles to your door every month (link below) and my first delivery today contained a number of gems including a single by Belfast five piece Pleasure Beach.
The single features two tracks Go and Dreamer To The Dawn, both of which combine electronics, dreampop, an Arcade Fire feel and a huge sound and both tracks are fantastic. Dreamer To The Dawn especially sets the pulse racing with its marvellously and shamelessly massive chorus and Go is how Bruce Springsteen might have sounded if he'd come from Belfast and used synthesizers. As introductions go, this single is a cracker.
The band have just released a new e.p. featuring a remix of Go (video below), Dreamer To The Dawn (the title track) and Hayley and are supporting The Vaccines in December on their Belfast gig. Pleasure Beach are certainly a band to keep an eye on.
