[Get Stoked About] Beautiful Bodies

Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore…

One of the best things about going to live shows is discovering new bands that are opening for your favourite bands. One of my long-time favourite bands is finally stopping by in London town this weekend. Since I will be there, it came naturally to become familiar with the support acts as well. And what a gem I have found!

Beautiful Bodies from Kansas City, MO have come a long way from home as they are currently busy spreading rock music across the UK. I quite literally fell in love with their 2015 debut album Battles this afternoon – what has been on repeat since. Not only it is John Feldmann produced (of course…I can’t seem to have a favourite album that isn’t his doing since 2004) but it is full of empowering anthems that beg to be screamed at the top of your lungs – like “Invincible” and “War Inside Your Heart” – while songs like “She’s A Blast” and “Subversive Lover” has true rock and roll vibes written all over them.

I love the way they’re blending modern pop-rock with PVRIS-like electronics and exuberant sound that brings the 80’s era of alternative rock to mind. I am definitely eager to see what the future holds to this band, and cannot wait to catch them live.

Check out the video for “War Inside Your Heart” below:
