‘Sexy & dirty, melodic & gloriously messy at the same time’ Les Inrocks
‘Saturated garage guitar pop, lo-fi psychedelism sung in English…it’s simple, it’s beautiful, it’s dignified & sober’ Rock & Folk Magazine
Beat Mark are one of a few French bands to strike with the noisy pop spirit of contemporary U.S. music (from MGMT to Dum Dum Girls), who don’t hide their mid-80s to mid-90s English influences. Their sound has been described as nuggets of The Vaselines, and The Television Personalities with a few drops of The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Stone Roses and Primal Scream. Some have even evoked My Bloody Valentine. Whatever the mix, the 2 boys and 2 girls of Beat Mark from Paris have created a full-length album that has a raw and instantly refreshing new sound. Who would have thought the French could be so chic hot!
'Howls of Joy' LP out 18th February.
