Beach Baby are a London-based four-piece whose crisp, US-inspired take on apathetic alternative-pop finds it roots across Athens, Dorset and Sheffield. They met in the musically-rich halls of Goldsmiths College, where co-vocalists Ollie and Lawrence placed an advert looking to build on their then-folk-driven, dual songwriting partnership: future bassist Iraklis turned up dressing like a 50s college freshman (and swiftly got the gig), before drummer Shep completed the equation. Balancing their burgeoning sound with make-do jobs ranging from a teaching assistant to feature-film script readers, the band have arrived fully-formed at the distinct, occasionally dream-like sound and visuals of Beach Baby.
