BEACH PANIC! TRAVEL
BACK IN TIME WITH NEW
SURF ROCK SINGLE
Melbourne alternative trio BEACH PANIC! are paying tribute to a story as old as time with their crooning new ballad, “Kindred”. “Kindred” leads the way for their forthcoming ‘ICE CREAM TAMBOURINE’ EP full of early rock and roll soundscapes plucked straight from the late 60s.
“Kindred” explores the fear and vulnerability of falling in love with someone, and sonically showcases exactly what BEACH PANIC! are all about. Produced mixed and mastered by the band themselves, the trio place emphasis on their DIY ethic when it comes to their music. “We wanted to hone in the sound of BEACH PANIC! on our more classic influences of the late 50s and 60s, tapping into the original brash and bold attitude of early rock and roll, like Elvis Presley or The Beatles, mixed with the sound and textures of later surf-rock,” explains the band. “Kindred wears it’s heart on its sleeve as it asks to put its ring on your finger.”
The “Kindred” music video premiered yesterday via TheMusic, who described the single as “a surfy, west coast synth tune dripping with nostalgia.”
The video is an additional DIY venture, taking influence from classic visuals pulled from the mid 20th century. The video’s contrast of light and dark represents the balance of good and bad, and the need for both in order to truly appreciate something beautiful. “Taking on the motifs of the yesteryears, we did a lot of research into old school Hollywood film making, especially the lighting and set design to create a video that looks and feels like a well polished emotional performance plucked straight out of the late 60’s.”
Adding a new dimension to the traditional band lineup, BEACH PANIC! is a surf-pop art project comprised of two musicians, Daniel Marinakis and Tom Mitchell, who share musical duties with alternative rockers Belle Haven, and creative mastermind and visual artist Yannica Stakelbeck-Keily. The group go by their own monikers, Tequila Sunrise (Yannica Stakelbeck-Keily), her long time partner Dr. M. Flamingo (Daniel Marinakis) and his best friend Daddy Longlegs (Tom Mitchell) whose lives converged in a creative household where the project was born.
