Our next cassette release is 'Seafood’, the new single from London based music and video arts group Beaty Heart, with a limited run of 100. A jubilant slice of off-kilter pop, ‘Seafood’ is the type of unpredictable delight expected of the tirelessly creative band.
Beaty Heart juxtapose musical and cultural influences from popular music across the globe into their work, weaving an array of samples, instrumentation, and percussion to create a sound described as 'psychedelic drum pop' and 'funfair-punk’. Both Beaty Heart’s live and recorded music is accompanied by original artwork and video created by the band members. The band strive to create pop music that cannot be sonically associated to any particular time or place, constructing their music by using the aspects of many forms of popular music that they feel are 'timeless'.
Produced by Al O’Connell, recent winner of the Recording Engineer of the Year award from the Music Producers Guild, ‘Seafood’ will feature on the band’s debut album, due for release later this year. During the writing process they have been working on stripping back their sound, clearing away some of the clutter that comes from being a new band searching for its own identity. Their new material exposes strong melodies and songwriting abilities, whilst also retaining the strong percussive backbone of their previous work.
