London's BEATY HEART are an eclectic, neo-psych-infused four-piece with a heavy world music and electronic pop vibe. Formed at Goldsmith College in 2010, Beaty Heart feature the talents of four percussionists/multi-instrumentalists: Josh Mitchell (vocals, guitars, electronics), Charlie Rotberg (drums, electronics), James Moruzzi (drums, vocals, electronics), and Thomas Gunning (drums, electronics, vocals). Originally conceived as an audio-visual art collective, the quartet eventually morphed into an all-out pop ensemble. In 2014, Beaty Heart released their debut full-length album, Mixed Blessings, on Caroline. Last month they returned with the fantastic sophomore album, Till The Bomb.

Although rooted in the UK’s capital city, Beach Baby’s crisp, soaring take on apathetic alternative-pop finds it roots across Dorset and Sheffield, as well as Athens, Greece. The four-piece band – Lawrence (guitar, vocals), Ollie (guitar, keys, vocals), Iraklis (bass), and Shep (drums) – met in the musically-rich halls of Goldsmiths College in London, where the co-vocalists placed an ad looking to build on their then-folk-driven, dual songwriting partnership. Future bassist Iraklis (an Athens native) turned up dressing like a ‘50s college freshman (and swiftly got the gig), before drummer Shep completed the equation. While supporting their burgeoning pursuit with patchwork jobs ranging from a teaching assistant to feature-film script reader, the band have arrived fully formed at the distinct, occasionally dream-like sound and visuals of Beach Baby.
