band crush beaches


by faran krentcil

On Friday, we did a roundup of bands with surfer names.

Between our adoration of Beach House, or fascination with Surfer Blood, and our fits-and-giggles rendition of Girls in Hawaii, we totally forgot about the Melbourne-and-Brooklyn band simply called "Beaches."

They may share a name with Bette Midler's classic '90s movie, but there's nothing retro about Beaches' clean, scream-worthy sound. 

Hear them on their MySpace page, The Sky Was White.
