Boat Beam

Beam Boat are Josephine, Alisha and Aurora. One Australian, one American and one Spanish. No joke. They use the guitarstrings, viola, cello and piano to create music that sounds like The Cinematic Orchestra and The Divine Comedy. Their voices sing songs such like Fiona Apple or Tori Amos but also as writers who sing like Sylvia Plath or Süskind if Patrick were dedicated to it. Boat Beam was inspired by the great music of Johann Johannson, The Dresden Dolls and PJ Harvey. Their songs are inspired by their experiences. Their music sounds like books, movies, and traveling; in short a life. Josephine came to Madrid in 2006 after passing through the world and having played in several bands in her country (Terapin and Sparkadia). She met Alisha in Spain, which had violated its service combos classical, jazz and rock. And together, they gave with Aurora, a cellist who had stepped up tables Madrid half. Boards were able to square the circle with only three vertices. Call it a miracle. Call it destiny. Call it Boat Beam. The fact is that since they joined their talent and effort, they generated quite a buzz on the underground scene in Madrid. Rumors were started of a group that filled the halls with their touching repertoire. Very positive reviews made others want to experience the thrill of discovering something great. Now it's no longer a rumor, it is no longer underground. Boat Beam now have released their first album "Puzzle Shapes" and the whole world will be able to verify the truth of all the rumors. There are three girls in Madrid that play pop classics, current and timeless. Those three girls are Boat Beam.

I heard them via the World music thing for the month, and this was by far my so good. I predict big things! Well, at least in the blog world.
