Beauts – Waves/Wash EP Review

On their latest EP outing, Waves/Wash, local Halifax rockers Beauts waste no time in setting the tone in what proves to be a solid four-song blast of fuzzed-out, indie -rock.  Reminiscent of a sound sandwiched somewhere between Swedish rockers The Hives and Canadian duo Japandroids, Waves/Wash is a tightly wound EP filled with sprawling guitar work and brilliant, catchy choruses.

Building on the rawness which was their self-titled debut from 2015, Beauts have spent the past year honing their sound and sharpening their bite while maintaining a sensibility found in all storytellers.

With a successful EP release already under their belt and a spot on the bill of the upcoming  Gridlock Festival, 2016 is shaping up to become a great year for this quintet.

For all things Beauts you can stream the EP over here on Spotify and it can also be purchased on the group’s bandcamp here.
