Beach Fossils Reveal ‘Generational Synthetic’

Beach Fossils Premiere Video for "Generational Synthetic". Tour With Kurt Vile Starts Tomorrow.

This past May Beach Fossils toured across Europe, playing shows back to back through the month, including a set at The Great Escape Fesitval in Brigthon. After their set at the fest, the band took to the streets, joined by videographer friend Piece McGarry, VHS camera in hand, and let loose. Layering and editing the footage from the night, McGarry created a trippy, lo-fi video for “Generational Synthetic”, a single off of last year’s Clash the Truth.

Beach Fossils began in 2009 as the solo project of Dustin Payseur. Before and after the 2010 release of the S/T debut LP and 2011’s What A Pleasure EP, they performed around the world with a lineup that once featured Cole Smith (DIIV) and John Peńa (Heavenly Beat). They quickly became known for their highly energetic stage show, bringing the recorded work to a volume and tempo that would make even the indie-est of crowds wind up in a frenzy. With the exception of drummer Tommy Gardner, that lineup dissolved to pursue their ambitions with the aforementioned projects. Wanting to bridge the gap between the live and recorded aspects of the band, Dustin began writing Clash the Truth determined to capture the urgency, human flow and spontaneity of the live performance.
