Beach Fossils' sound on their new single, "Shallow," shows improvement and progression from the young band's earlier work. The rhythm section, which really drives the song, is reminiscent of Real Estate's newest, Days. The melodic bass, coupled with a drumbeat that is sparse and precise, marks growing musical maturity.
Dustin Payseur's soft vocals fit well in the background of the mix countered by echoing single note guitar hooks. Beach Fossils present a definitive style here, which will hopefully continue expanding on their new record, which is currently in production.
