Pleasure Beach – on the festival rounds
What you may need to know…
01. Belfast dream-pop five-piece Pleasure Beach are busy on the summer’s festival bills.
02. Signed to local label Faction, the band emerged late last year with debut single Go, which quickly made radio rounds, and got a Choice Music Prize nomination for Song of the Year.
03. Streaming above is the video for Go, taken from their Dreamer to the Dawn EP, released this past February.
Verdict: Their EP is one of the strongest by a debuting Irish band in recent years. Ramshackle songcraft with much to like for shoegazers and synth nerds.
