The Auckland indie-rockers will promote their upcoming album, Jump Rope Gazers.
New Zealand indie rock band The Beths will come to Dublin for a concert at the Workman’s Club on April 3, 2021.
The show marks the band’s second visit to Ireland. This January, the four-piece played a sold-out concert at the Grand Social.
At their upcoming show the band will be promoting their new album, Jump Rope Gazers, set to come out on July 10th. In a press release, the band described the album as tackling “themes of anxiety and self-doubt with effervescent power pop choruses and rousing backup vocals.”
The Beths have already released several singles off the new project: ‘Out of Sight,’ ‘I’m Not Getting Excited,’ and ‘Dying to Believe.’ All three have moody lyrics alongside big guitars and poppy melodies—the Beths’ signature style, and the source of their charm.
The three singles also came with music videos, which you can watch here, here and here. The videos showcase the band’s retro influences, drawing on the aesthetics of 70s home movies and 80s instructional videos.
Lead vocalist Elizabeth Stokes said she wrote Jump Rope Gazers in between the intense bouts of touring which have consumed much of the band’s time since the release of Future Me Hates Me, their 2018 breakout album.
Rolling Stone called Future Me Hates Me a “power-pop monument,” and the project’s success allowed the members of the Beths to quit their day jobs and make music full-time. Pitchfork also wrote a glowing review, praising the album’s “tight, hook-filled songwriting filled with energy and attitude.”
Soon after the album’s release, the Beths began touring in North America and Europe and opened for the Pixies and Death Cab for Cutie.
