BEACH RIOT Reveal 8-Bit Game Inspired Video For ‘Wrong Impression’

21st August 2020

After recently adding BBC Radio One’s Jack Saunders and BBC 6music’s Tom Robinson to their growing list of supporters, Brighton fuzz pop quartet BEACH RIOT are pleased to reveal the video for their latest single ‘Wrong Impression’ which is out now on Alcopop! Records.

The band are currently bunkered down in the studio working on a body of new material—their first since the 2018 Beach Riot EP—with details to be announced over the coming months.

Inspired by the 8-bit computer games of the ‘80s and ‘90s, the video for the single follows the band’s previously released Instagram filter arcade game, with the aim being to use face movement to fly a spaceship through a minefield of waving cats (obviously), whilst an instrumental of the song’s thunderous intro plays in the background. 

To play along, search “CATNIP 3000” on Instagram filters. 

Earlier this year the band’s UK tour with labelmates Gaffa Tape Sandy was sadly cut short due to coronavirus, but during lockdown the band have been keeping busy taking part in DORK Magazine’s Homeschool Festival, playing an Instagram Live gig for venue chain Jimmy’s, releasing an acoustic set filmed back in February for Pinkn.oise, and recording an exclusive cover of ‘Do You Believe’ by The Cardigans for George Godfrey’s (Radio X, Alt Disco) #LifeMentalHealth campaign.

Hotly tipped for the 2020 live circuit before the pandemic, the quartet have previously played Reading & Leeds Festival 2018 and Truck Festival 2019.

Press support from Kerrang! Magazine, CLASH, MOJO, The iNewspaper, Louder Than War and LOUDER has been bolstered by a #12 spot on the Amazing Radio Chart, an evening playlist addition from XS Manchester, plus key radio spins from Huw Stephens and Daniel P Carter at BBC Radio One, John Kennedy at Radio X, BBC Scotland’s Vic Galloway, Total Rock, legendary US station KEXP, and BBC introducing

Previous stand alone singles ‘Tune In, Drop Out’ and ‘Robot’ have racked up a combined 150k plays on Spotify to date.

Further details of new material will be revealed soon.
