Biography

You’d never guess The Beep Seals were from Manchester. If you were picking which west side they’re from you’d probably think more LA than Levenshulme. They are a band with a seriously sunny disposition, and a mid-Atlantic sound to match, several hundred miles from Manchester ‘s famously slate-gray skies. Their debut album Things That Roar is a distinctly presentable record, warm of tone and sweet of harmony; the kind of album you could take home to meet your parents. It touches on The Delgados’ grand, melodic sound and Dodgy ‘s perky indie-rock, with some classic pop references in there too, bits of Beatles and Beach Boys. Plonking pianos and plucked strings inhabit familiar verse-chorus-verse structures. The harmless faux-psychedelic lyrics come from the Noel Gallagher’ s sink is full of fishes school of rhyme.
