Summary:

The songs are quite catchy and I can certainly see them getting plenty of radio airplay with this album.

Beachheads is a band that was founded by Kvelertak members Marvin Nygaard and Vidar Landa.  They had the idea for the band several years ago but as Kvelertak are a hard working band it’s only recently they’ve had time to put their plans into action.  They brought in two musicians to join them and have written and recorded their debut album ready to release in February 2017.  It’s very different from Kvelertak having more of a 90s Indie rock meets pop-punk, or power pop kind of sound and so it’s nowhere near as heavy as Kvelertak.

The album is packed full of strong tunes with well written lyrics.  The songs are quite catchy and I can certainly see them getting plenty of radio airplay with this album.  Personally I think it’s got a slightly dated Indie rock feel to it, and never having liked Oasis then I find that a bit off-putting, but the more I listened to this album, the more it grew on me.

Two of the songs on the album have been released as videos – check them both out below and hear for yourselves what the band is like.

Although it’s not the sort of thing I usually listen to, I have to say I do like this album from beachheads.  It’s more upbeat and cheerful than 90s Indie rock and is far more catchy.  Well worth a listen.
