‘Revellers’ is the 4th single from Gothenburg’s fast rising indie sensation Beverly Kills and is bound to suck
you in with its dreamy and infectious hooks then spit you right back out with its dark twisted lyrics.
Beverly Kills are creating an impressive name for themselves as one of Gothenburg’s up and coming bands to watch.
Last year saw the band release ‘Fourteen’, ‘Melodrama’ and ‘Dreamless’, gathered great acclaim from both local and
international press including being mentioned as one of the “Best Swedish Indie Debuts 2018” by HYMN and being
nominated for the” Breakthrough of the Year” in the Gaffa Awards. This also saw the band playing Gothenburg music
showcase festival Viva Sounds and a side show at this years by:Larm Festival along with shows supporting Agent blå,
Moaning (USA- Sub-pop) and Västerbron later this March. The release of Beverly Kills brand new single ‘Revellers’
comes with the announcement of their debut physical release ‘In This Dim Light/Melodrama’ limited edition 7” vinyl
through Australian Indie label Hell Beach.
‘Revellers’ encapsulates the very essence of Beverly Kills, emotionally charged and full of energy, as they seemingly
blend driving, raw and catchy sonic landscapes with dark and complex lyrical content. The energy of the song is set
by a punchy and aggressive rhythm section laid down by Viggo Mattson and Hampus Höggren, which is perfectly
matched by John Jonsén tight rhythm guitar playing. Dreamy synths and atmospheric guitar tones act as points of
relief throughout the song as Alma Westerlund’s vocals float effortlessly throughout the track delivering catchy
vocal melodies and most importantly the lyrical content. The idea behind the lyrics came out of a spiraling, weird
thought that John had after reading about the increasing numbers of the ‘Bystander Effect’ in Sweden. This got John
thinking about a potential world where we’ve killed off everything and everyone just to satisfy our need to see death
and chaos, “until there’s nothing left to kill but ourselves”. ‘Revellers’ clearly demonstrates Beverly Kills song writing
prowess and further establishes their emergence in the ever-exciting Gothenburg indie scene.
