While the French indie pop band Beach Youth only have a few releases to date they have already dug deep into their sound with "Days". The Caen four-piece blend a mix of airy and driven vibes seamlessly through their music to create a diverse set of songs that can all soundtrack a laid back day.
With a surf pop style that hints at a shoegaze influence mixed with tropical undertones, "Days" offers a matured progression. Unlike the previous clear as day material found on Beach Youth's SoundCloud, "Days" focuses on the bands grittier edge. While the heavy instrumentals carry the song forward, vocals and chants are found just above the top layer guiding verses along. Simplistic throughout, "Days" stands out by using its straightforward approach to accentuate the infectious melody, allowing it to shine through.

With clever instrumentation, Beach Youth have positioned themselves in an area where they are free to bend their underlying theme in different directions, making their future one to keep an eye and ear on.
