Hailing from Brooklyn NY, the Beach Fossils (myspace) sound a lot more British than one would expect. I’ve read a few comments suggesting they sound sort of like Joy Division (a great, great band as an aside check them out at your download site as well), and I can sort of see it, but I think they have a sound all their own too.
Whoever you think they sound like, their music and lyrics are infectious and peppy, but with enough of a dark, haunting twist that, well, hopefully, you enjoy them just as much as me.
Just One: “Vacation”
Two More: “Daydream”, “Wide Awake”
