Art rock is about as unconventional as a genre of music can get and Guelph, ON based band, Beach Bodies has it dialed in for their debut LP, Onward & Downward, who describe the album as “simultaneously gloomy and uplifting, a chronicling of adolescence anxiety of the world at large to new beginnings“.
Upon first listen you realize that this is not your average alternative rock album. It is a collection of songs that demonstrate how to make a bold musical statement without getting lost in the noise. Beach Bodies have fused together a multitude of layers such as calming nature sounds, 70’s rock elements and hints of jazz to create a sonic landscape worth exploring a little deeper. It is within these finely woven details where Beach Bodies expose the care they take to handcraft each song into the quirky, experimental self-described ‘jangle pop’ gems that pepper the album.

I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
