Bathed in the vivid colours of psychedelia through a Garage rock gaze, we welcome Canadians Wrecked Beach.

Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia Wrecked Beach blur the lines between progressive Garage rock and washed out psychedelic pop. They’ve only a few singles to their name, this new one is called ‘Fade’.
Very few new artists seem to have been given the attention they deserve in the fields of Garage rock, 60’s or psych-rock of late. We’re talking about talented songwriters and alternative pop music, think Temples or Mystery Lights, not just 12 minute strung out jams.
‘Fade’ starts with the sort of tight-knit locked in bass and drum groove you may associate with krautrock but add some spikey, mind-bending guitar lines and some high-pitched synth and we’ve got a winning ticket. We need artists to take us elsewhere at the moment, and newcomers Wrecked Beach do just that.
