I think it’s safe to say that The Beaches were one of the top break-through acts for us at GIGsoup last year. Their quite incredible alt-rock is not only delicious but also extremely infectious. Their 2013 EP contained tracks of such quality any one of them could have been successfully released as a single. And so it’s onto 2014 and the bands latest release ‘Little Pieces‘. It picks up directly from the previous EP and if anything offers the listener more.

It’s a catchy track that showcases this all female Toronto-based four-piece as not only great musicians but clever song-writers. ‘Little Pieces’ is taken from a forthcoming EP, which has an April 28th release date, via AWAL.
Proud pioneers of today’s new-wave class of fem-rock, their sassy sensibility has seen them likened to sibling trio Haim, not least for the fact that two of the band’s four members are sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller. Imbued with the snarl and spit of romantic defiance, youth rebellion and peer solidarity that makes the 16 to 19-year-old females such a formidable force to be reckoned with, their sassy, saw-toothed sound now recalls that of The Strokes, The White Stripes and Metric.
