The Beach is a dark, electro pop gem by the British duo of Joe Reeves and Darren Cullen who are better known as Age of Consent.
The bands’ PR release states that ‘they make dark, dystopian gothic-pop influenced by bands and production duos such as The Knife, Suicide and Yeasayer’.
Hmm dark …check; gothic-pop…..check; influences….i’m not so sure! Have a listen to The Beach and judge for yourself.
If you like the song you can buy it the bands’ Bandcamp page. Want more? Check out Heartbreak, another cool song by Age of Consent (apologies for the slightly dodgy audio on this one).
