UK band Beach Riot have returned this year with new single “Tramlines”, now available via Alcopop! Records. Beach Riot will be playing a special single release show on 24th February at Brighton Electric, with a London date TBA.

Commenting on the track, the band say: “At first it seemed like a song about love, sharing love with someone special, and specifically that early stage full of crazy excitement. But when I started getting deeper into it there was more to it. The song is about escaping from a place of worry with someone you hold dear, with the feeling that you’re lucky to have each other, but it also brings the thought of knowing that there are other people out there that might never have that—especially those close to you.”

Recorded at Vada Studios and engineered by Pete Hutchins (Royal Blood, Gang Of Youths, Foals), the new single was mastered by Grant Berry at Fader Mastering. “Tramlines” is the first new material from the band following the release of their debut album Subatomic Party Cool on Alcopop! Records in 2021. Recorded in 2020 and produced by Ally Jowett at his home studio in Brighton.

Following a run of German tour dates with Berlin power trio PABST last year, the quartet will be announcing further live dates for 2023 in the near future, having previously played Reading & Leeds Festival, Truck Festival, The Great Escape and more.
