Following their critically acclaimed self-titled debut, Beach Fossils returned with the beautifully crafted EP, What a Pleasure, in 2011. Here, Dustin Payseur shares songwriting duties with bassist John Pena, which makes for a set of some of the most dynamic Beach Fossils’ songs yet. Moreover, on “Out in the Way,” Payseur teams up with the talented Jack Tatum of Wild Nothing for a song that reveals both artists’ visions in a way that the world has yet to hear.
What a Pleasure is full of clean, simple guitar lines that build up to melancholic endings. The mature sound and cleaner production value on this EP presents glimpses of where Beach Fossils have been and where they aim to go.
