THE BETHS WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
The Beths will play a very special album release concert at Auckland’s Powerstation on Saturday July 11th.
The Beths new single “Out of Sight,” is from their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Jump Rope Gazers, out July 10th on Carpark Records.. It follows previously released singles “I’m Not Getting Excited” and “Dying to Believe.”
“Out of Sight” is tender and shoegazing. It reckons with the distance that drives people apart and how those who love each other inevitably fail each other. The best way to repair that failure, in The Beths’ view, is with abundant and unconditional love, no matter how far it has to travel.
Elizabeth Stokes says, “The band playing on ‘Out Of Sight’ is more fragile than we usually allow ourselves to be. We are trying to listen more deeply and be more open ended, it was confronting to do and sometimes even frustrating. But it came out great, Ben’s bass playing especially is beautifully melodic and gives the song a unique texture."
The Beths are Elizabeth Stokes (vocals/guitar), Jonathan Pearce (guitar), Benjamin Sinclair (bass), and Tristan Deck (drums). Jump Rope Gazers is the follow-up to Future Me Hates Me, “one of the most impressive indie-rock debuts of the year” (Pitchfork).
