[MP3] Beatenberg – Jessie Colyn

posted by: Lydia New Music Daily

Beatenberg, a three-piece pop band from South Africa, might be onto something here with their songs titled with girls’ names. Their last single release was called “Chelsea Blakemore,” and today they released a short song (only 1:54, unfortunately) called “Jessie Colyn.” Despite it’s short length, it packs a lot of punch. It sounds straight out of the 80’s or early 90’s, and it’s catchy as hell. If you have the strength to not press play and listen again after one listen, I guess I commend you. Though I think you’re missing out, so maybe I actually shun you. It’s most likely the latter. Anyway, I like these dudes. Partly I like them because they’re from South Africa, not Sweden, and yet they’re still able to penetrate the infectious pop market. And partly because there’s something incredibly familiar about their sound. Maybe it’s that their lead singer Matthew Field’s voice sounds a bit like Paul Simon’s, particularly in their song “In B Flat,” which you might remember we featured on a Tape Tuesday. Anyway, I’m a believer. #Beatenberg4life.
