Listen: Guantanamo Baywatch


gbw_monsterchildren

The Endless Summer needs to be remade for one reason only: so Guantanamo Baywatch’s new album, Darling… It’s Too Late, can be the soundtrack.

It’s a full serving of surfer pop rock with a side of nostalgia salad – heavy on the vibe dressing. Guantanamo Baywatch, from Portland, Oregan, have really mastered the art of capturing the sounds of yesteryear whilst still sounding relevant today. It’s like using a time machine to go back to the future. Y’know? No? Who cares? Just listen to the music. It’s really good, and right now MC is the only place you can hear the new album in full. Here, and in the past-future. Y’know?
