As the days get longer and warmer, can it really be too early to be on the lookout for some chill summer tunes? I thought not! Fusing indie rock, synth rock, bedroom pop, dance pop and a bit of world beat, and washing it in sunshine, seems to be the recipe for Seattle's Beat Connection. A case in point is "Silver Screen":
Sure, it sounds like it may nothing but studio wizardry, but Beat Connection known for killing it live, as well. Seattle's City Arts magazine named them fifth in their 'Best New Bands 2011' poll. Moreover, their chops are being recognized outside of Seattle as well as they'll be in Austin in mid-March for SXSW, and their song "Silver Screen" was chosen by Drowned in Sound blog as the single of the week. All of this is even more impressive when you realize that the gang seems to still be in their early 20s.
The name of the eight song debut EP is Surf Noir. Some of the songs were available in mp3 format previously, but they have been mastered for the release of the EP.
