Beach Baby are a London-based four-piece whose apathetic alternative-pop finds it roots across Athens, Dorset and Sheffield.

The band met in the musically-rich halls of Goldsmiths College, where co-vocalists Ollie and Lawrence placed an advert looking to build on their then-folk-driven, dual songwriting partnership: future bassist Iraklis turned up dressing like a 50s college freshman (and swiftly got the gig), before drummer Shep completed the equation. Balancing their escapist sound with make-do jobs ranging from a teaching assistant to feature-film script readers, the band have arrived fully-formed at the striking aesthetic of Beach Baby.

New single ‘Sleeperhead’ is due for release on 11th March via Handsome Dad.

“Captures the best of several genres – post-punk, baggy, shoegaze, grunge – without sounding like a mess…could be big” – Guardian
