Beach For Tiger – “Toffee”


“Toffee” is a striking new track from Beach For Tiger, the psychedelic rock band from London/Essex we were introduced to with the soaring track “Something Good” last year. “Toffee” is the best I’ve heard from them yet, captivating from the get-go, when the heavy synths land alongside suavely trickling guitars. Aesthetically, there’s a likeness to Toro y Moi. The track excels at the two-minute mark, when fluid guitars, a blissful bass line, and enveloping synths – giving off a slightly symphonic vibe – complement the main vocal hook. Guitar crunches and more versatile synth lines follow, making for a trippy and jazz-laden final minute. “Toffee” is an excellent track from Beach For Tiger.

This track made it onto to our ‘Best Tracks of 2018’ Spotify playlist.
