Formed in the summer of 2017 in a garage in the heart of the Canadian prairies, Beach Body took their time to marinade in their creative juices. And that same garage is where they would perfect their laid-back brand of landlocked indie rock. With three EP’s already under their belt (“Plain Life” – 2017, “Curb Ciggies” – 2018, and “Beach Body Presents: The Southside Coyote Boys” – 2019) the band is thrilled to be releasing their new tunes to the world.
Beach Body ‘Almost Summer’ Premiere
Written in the spring of 2020 whilst holed up in a small cabin near a deserted Northern Saskatchewan village – and then recorded in a funeral-home-turned-recording-
studio (SoulSound Studio) – the new music is a testament to their creative output and consistent drive for new, fresh and forward facing sounds. “I started writing ‘Almost Summer’ in 2018, when I was asked to write a theme song for my favourite little Regina music festival Swamp Fest,” says lead man Rory Copithorn. “I watched Wes Craven’s 1982 film Swamp Thing on repeat for a few days for some inspiration and the final version of the song has a not so subtle lyrical reference to the movie which inspired it. All in all, it’s a song about looking back at a time when all I could do was look forward, thinking real life would start some-place on the horizon.”
