Neu Pick: Slaughter Beach bring the haze with ‘Glaze’

Slaughter Beach bring the haze with ‘Glaze’

The Danish pop purveyors are today’s Neu Pick.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Slaughter Beach.

Viscose and glittery - like a pot of syrup that’s taken a dip in disco-land - Danish trio Slaughter Beach specialise in smooth, glossy pop packed with tightly packed textures. Their latest single ‘Glaze’ is their most immediate and densely packed yet; hook after soaring hook packed wall-to-wall like gold-stacked honeycomb.

The band take their name from a titchy American town, which apparently got its name because of the thousands of crabs that wash up on the beach every year and die. Lovely stuff! That sharp pincered doom and gloom aside, Slaughter Beach actually have a knack for iridescent euphoria. Following on from their shimmering ‘Love/Venice’ EP last year, ‘Glaze’ is their boldest, biggest song to date.

We’re dead chuffed to have the first spin of Slaughter Beach’s new single ‘Glaze’. Listen to it below.
