Ahead of the release of Somersault next month, Beach Fossils are sharing two more new tracks. Tangerine, a driving, tightly wound melody, rushes forward and briefly leaves the ground due to the gossamer guest vocals of Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell.
The cloudy, wistful Social Jetlag, bustling with samples of crowded streets, features the type of candid, off-the-cuff lyrics that make the entire effort immediately illuminating. Charting into new musical territory with a refined songwriting style, Somersault captures flashes of life in New York grounded in personal experience.
Beach Fossils are also encouraging fans to donate to two arts programs that are facing funding cuts due to the Trump administration, the National Endowment for the Arts (donate here) and Center for Arts Education NYC (donate here). A previous press release stated: “They want to make sure this video is a platform for people to be informed about the ability to speak out against the defunding of these programs, as well as collect any possible donations for their programs.”
