Beach Fossils, one of the best dream-pop indie bands out there, are returning to Houston!
Beach Fossils is a band from Brooklyn, New York that formed in 2009, where lead vocalist Dustin Payseur created the band as an extension of his own solo project. He pulled together a few members and they released their critically acclaimed self-titled album in 2010. The jangly guitars keep you dancing, and Payseur’s lo-fi vocals keep you grounded, making this album a true indie classic.
After seeing success with their first album, they released their EP What A Pleasure a year later, followed by the album Clash the Truth, two years later. Clash the Truth marked a transitional point that could be described as darker and more cohesive than their prior projects; much more dreamy, and a lot less pop.
The group then released their third album Somersault, which features a more refined and dreamlike sound, skewing their aesthetic into a more tranquil one. The album also has amazing collaborations with Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell (“Tangerine” and “Saint Ivy”) and Cities Aviv (“Rise”), which both provide immaculate listening experiences.
Beach Fossils, alongside Wild Nothing and Hannah Jagadu, are on tour for roughly two months starting early October. They will be making their way to Houston, TX on October 16th at Satellite Bar. Make sure to grab your tickets here!
