The Beths announces new album + shares music video

May 9, 2018 1:43 pm

New album! New song! New video! Tour! So stoked to share the bright, jingly new track from The Beths, “Future Me Hates Me.” Check it out via Stereogum. There debut LP, Future Me Hates Me, will be here August 10th, 2018.

“There’s a lot of sad sincerity in the lyrics,” says singer Liz Stokes, “that relies on the music having a light heart and sense of humor to keep it from being too earnest.” Channeling their stew of personal-canon heroes while drawing inspiration from contemporaries like Alvvays and Courtney Barnett, The Beths serve up deeply emotional lyrics packaged within heavenly sounds that delight in probing the limits of the pop form. “That’s another New Zealand thing,” Stokes concludes with a laugh. “We’re putting our hearts on our sleeves—and then apologizing for it.” The result is nothing less than one of the standout records of 2018.

Head over to the Carpark shop to purchase a tangy-yellow LP, or stream the first single on your favorite streaming service. Thanks for listening!
