I've come to be a big fan of The Sunset Beach Hut since their debut single release in february. They've already shown that they can produce a wide spectrum of music. This new single is further proof of that, and whilst those debut singles were rougher around the edges, this one is so polished and so well made that it feels as though they've gone to amateur to pro in about 6 months. When you see a band come a long this far in such a short space it is a stark representation of how immensely talented they are.
Upside-Down opens with a driving bassline - reminiscent of gargantuan indie legends The Smiths before a guitar opens with a sound so catchy it will rattle around your head for days. And then Aphra's vocals kick in and this is the strongest she's sounded yet, she takes over the track entirely and drives the song a long very well. She really exemplifies the strength of her voice throughout this as well. As a side note - I love the single cover of this track as well, would love to see that on the cover of a 7" vinyl single.
Upside-Down is released 29th August 2018
