Kiwi quartet The Beths have released the catchiest and most hook-laden record I’ve heard this year with Future Me Hates Me via Carpark Records. Each band member studied jazz at university, though the record is about as unabashedly power-pop as it gets, it has certainly given them all the chops they could possibly need by the sounds of it. If you love your music upbeat but your lyrics down, you may struggle to find a better band this year.
The band are currently on a tour of the US for the next few weeks, making stops at Mercury Lounge for a late show on Thursday the 11th of October and Alphaville on the 12th. After these US dates the group head over to Europe and are playing there solidly through to February.
