WISHING WARS: “Beach”

The best thing an instrumental-only track can do, as far as we’re concerned, is provide a hook. But it’s hard to make hooks out of instruments, because what usually gets its hooks in you is an aspect you can sing along to. Often referred to as “lyrics.” Modern indie pop has found a way around that, with bands like BEACH FOSSILS making entire choruses out of guitar lines that stick in your head. Thus WISHING WARSBeach is a huge success, because despite the absence of even a single word, this track gets right in there, sporting guitar-synth hooks, echoey piano-bleep hooks, and an overall cinematic landscape that begs to be heard again, which is what this is all about.
