​​​​​​​The Beaches: Snake Tongue

By Kerry Doole

The Beaches - Snake Tongue (Universal Music Canada): Earlier this week, the Juno-winning femme rock foursome from Toronto announced that a new five-song EP, The Professional, will come out on May 16.

It will feature this current single, one that has already stirred up some action, including 315K views for the video. The tune rails against unwanted male attention, featuring this great putdown: “Stop sending me all your d*** picks they are boring me to pieces." It is delivered via throbbing bass, jackhammer drums, riffing guitars, and massed vocals.
In a label press release, Kylie Miller explains that "The Professional is a collection of songs that we’re extremely proud of. It includes our two singles Fascination and Snake Tongue with three brand new tracks. We had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with our dream producer/good friend Jackknife Lee [The Killers, U2, Weezer] and we’re so excited about this new evolution in our sound.”


The Beaches debut album, Late Show, came out in Oct. 2017 and spawned hit singles Money and T-Shirt. The group has opened for the Foo Fighters and Glorious Sons and counts Elton John as a fan.

The hard-working combo is currently touring in the US in support of Passion Pit, playing shows until May 25. The Beaches then play three dates in London, England, (June 12-14) and select summer shows in the Maritimes and Ontario. Itinerary here
