Today, we delve into the world of promising indie rock band Beyond the Wash from Cork, Ireland. In this review, we explore their enchanting song "Sand," examining its character, style, story, and potential. Join us as we dive into the captivating world of Beyond the Wash.

Beyond the Wash is an indie rock band that caught my attention approximately two months ago with their captivating song "Sand," released as a single in 2020. Since their inception in 2019, they have steadily released a series of singles including "When Words" (2019), "Dusktime" (2019), "Dusktime (Radio Edit)" (2019), "Misty Morning" (2019), "If Only (Live from Nano Nagle Place, Cork. 28.6.19)" (2020), "Uruguay" (2020), and "Sand" (2020). They capped off their early career with the release of their first EP album "Murmurings" (2020). I invite you to experience the mesmerizing melodies of "Sand" as we explore the intricacies of this song.

"Sand" is a powerful composition that immediately draws listeners into its captivating world, leaving a lasting impression. With its '90s street vibes, commanding attitude, rich instrumentation, and captivating atmosphere, the band showcases their potential through advanced musicianship and a deep understanding of music. A strong musical character shines through in this song, which is a rarity, especially in the British-Irish music scene, where British rock culture and sound tend to dominate. Beyond the Wash has masterfully crafted a song that captivates with its smooth flow. The gradual buildup of excitement and the unwavering freshness maintained until the end is truly irresistible. "Sand" serves as a valuable lesson and an excellent example of how a band can distinguish itself musically. While there are numerous aspects to commend, I must highlight the collective sound as the most impressive element. Despite their relatively short career, Beyond the Wash showcases a level of musicianship and experience that surpasses their time in the industry.

Technically, "Sand" meets top-class standards in every aspect. It can be described as a "production marvel," reminiscent of Metallica's Load and Reload albums. The instruments dynamically create beautiful patterns and vibes while seamlessly contributing to the overall flow, resulting in a collective sound where the listener experiences the harmonious whole rather than individual parts. The producer behind this album deserves recognition for breathing life into this beautiful song. The production is impeccable, with a clean, clear, and natural sound that is well-balanced, engineered, mixed, and mastered. The expertise of the producer, combined with the band's musical talent, has elevated "Sand" to new heights. In fact, the song possesses the potential to serve as a movie or video game soundtrack. It would come as no surprise to hear "Sand" playing in the next installment of Grand Theft Auto, for instance.

Considering all these factors, I must say that my time spent listening to Beyond the Wash has been thoroughly enjoyable. They have laid a strong foundation in their music and are moving in the right direction to develop their distinct musical character. "Sand" represents a significant step forward in their career without a doubt. These talented musicians from Ireland have the potential to become a vital force in their country's music scene if they continue creating music and maintain the high standards they have set.
