Listening to artist Beach’s new track In Us We Trust , I immediately loved the hype dance and frenetic energy of the song. Hooked by the 80’s alt electro-pop and modern day EDM influences, I had to hear more. Collaborating with Billie Jo (who goes by Alligator) to form Beach, Beach’s new album, In Us We Trust drops on July 16th and has garnered attention from outlets like Vibe Magazine already. Insistently picking up the violin at just four years old, her career has taken several interesting paths, leading her to form her own label, Short Story Records, in 2008. She’s toured with The Indigo Girls and Ani DiFranco and produced albums for Canadian folk legend, Ferron.
I chatted with Beach (formerly Bitch) before her last residency date in Los Angeles at Genghis Cohen and had a lively discussion about Debbie Gibson, her label, her controversial artist name, her new music, her Shortbus film and more.
