Beyond the Wash is a promising indie rock band I discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about two months ago with their captivating song, Sand, which released as a single in 2020. The band is officially making releases since 2019. They started their careers with a single release called, “When Words” (2019), and continued with six more singles, “Dusktime” (2019), “Dusktime (Radio Edit)” (2019), “Misty Morning” (2019), “If Only (Live from Nano Nagle Place, Cork. 28.6.19)” (2020), “Uruguay” (2020), “Sand” (2020), and finally released their first EP album, “Murmurings” (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Sand is a powerful song that immediately pulls you into its world and leaves its mark in listeners’ memory. It has the ’90s street vibes, a commanding attitude, rich instrumentation, and a captivating atmosphere in general. The band is showing potential with their advanced musicianships and understanding of music mostly. I felt a strong musical character here on this song, which you don’t come across that often, especially in the British-Irish world where British rock culture and sound is very dominant. These Irish gentlemen have done an excellent job by keeping everything simple here. Sometimes we love music just because of its smooth flow, just like in this example. I personally loved the way the song builds up the excitement and never loses the freshness until the end. It is hard to resist, truly. Sand is a good lesson for all of us, an excellent example of how you musically separate yourself from the rest of the world. As I mentioned above, there are many things I can talk about highly here. However, if I have to choose one, then I’d say it’s “collective sound” was the most impressive thing for me. Although the band is actively making music since 2019, they are obviously much more experienced musicians than just this period.
