Los Angeles' Beginners are streaming two further tracks from their forthcoming debut EP.
The brainchild of Samantha Barbera, songwriter and singer/bassist in hardcore punk band Holy Fever, and Nick Ruth, who's produced artists including Mikky Ekko and Active Child, BEGINNERS delivers well-crafted elements of garage rock with dark electronic pop hooks that fans of Santigold, Cults, Phantogram, Tegan and Sara, and Chromatics will be sure to appreciate. Barbera's attitude-tinged vocals carry the intensity and passion of an artist like Karen O, while Ruth's production captures a moody landscape fit for Depeche Mode's 'Violator'.
The debut Beginners EP will be released on March 24th, 2014. Tour dates to follow.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
