You Should Catch The Beths on Their Upcoming Tour


New Zealand is known for so many things, and thanks to three piece The Beths, you can add indie rock perfection. on their latest full length Future Me Hates Me, they craft a sound that’s part indie fuzz, part alterna rock and indie pop that’s hard not to love. Now with a new run of dates across the North America, you have pretty much no reason not to catch them when they visit your area.

When the fuzzy sounds of opener “Great No One” open the album, you should already be hooked. The Beths mix in melodic guitar and endearing vocals to keep you listening. They continue this on the follower, “Future Me Hates Me” holding you attention with a snappy stride and a hook filled verse chorus verse structure.

The whole album runs that way. The catchy sounds of “Uptown Girl,” the almost doo wop sound of “Happy Unhappy” and the sing song notes of “Whatever” offer up a sunny feel. While the bulk of the tracks are stand outs, one of the favorites would be the single “Little Death” where you hear a lot of what the four piece can bring to the table. A slow build, dreamy-like guitar tones, a quick step and more are all over the track as they make anyone who hears them a fan. The Beths aren’t reinventing the wheel here, they’re just updating how it works.

You can stream Future Me Hates Me on all streaming platforms, you can purchase it in all digital shops including Bandcamp or directly from Carpark Records. The Beths will be on tour starting January 23 at The Grand Social in Dublin and ends on May 30 with a set at Primavera Sound in Barcelona.
