Beach Side (2:51)

Cover of Come Around Sundown

From Come Around Sundown and 4 other releases

Caleb Followill explained to The Music Fix why they titled this mellow cali-pop tune “Beach Side”: “‘Beach Side’ is funny because the reason it’s called ‘Beach Side’ is because it was declared a ‘B-Side’ on the record. And, so, the whole time it was on the board it was written down as ‘B-Side.’”

He continued: “And I was like, ‘man, we can’t call it “B-Side.’” We started to really like the song at that point. And my little brother had went to a Beach House concert the night before. And he walked in with a Beach House shirt on and I said, ‘I got it. Let’s call the song ‘Beach Side!’” and everyone’s like ‘yeah!. It’s perfect.’ And then after having said that, it’s almost as if the sound of the song in all of our heads started to sound beach-y.”
Matthew Followill explained to The Music Fix how they developed this song’s ‘beach-y’ sound: “Nathan had a very ’70s drum tone that we were all really excited about that. Had the lap steel, but hadn’t really written a part for that yet, but I knew I wanted to use it. So, me and Jared got into the guitar room and wrote a part. And it ended up sounding beach-y and ’70s.”
