Kverlertak side-project Beachheads have announced the release date for their debut album, Beachheads.
Their debut will come out on the 3rd of February via Fysisk Format and has already received attention from Radio 1’s Daniel P. Carter.
Formed by two members of the band, their debut focuses more on melody and is heavily inspired by the likes of Husker Du and Teenage Fanclub.
The band was formed after Kvelertak members Vidar (guitar) and Marvin (bass) fantasized about the endless potential of fuzzy guitars, energetic drums and strong melodies.
After a demo session the pair joined forces with Stavanger-locals Espen, a metal drummer with a pop heart, and former synth-pop-singer Børild.
Together they knocked out three single tracks that quickly made a mark on playlists on both Norwegian and British national radio.
The album was recorded in Beachheads’ hometown Stavanger and mixed by Øystein Frantzvåg in Oslo studio Nabolaget.
The press release describes it as a body of work “brimmed with the sense a euphoric companionship, the power of trusting yourself and following your heart.
“Through the twelve tracks Børild establishes an ideal for us all: truthfulness and honesty will get you through anything.”
Stayed tuned for more to see how much truth that description holds of the album.
