Led by guitarist singer Jonathan Horsley and mostly operating like an art collective, Beach Bums is the kind of band that has never quite bothered to define themselves in any specific genre or a range of genres. Punk? Absolutely. Rap? Anytime. Shoegaze? Sure. Lo-fi acoustic underground type singer-songwriter stuff? Why Not? To be sure, whatever style they lean towards at any moment, they are all in on that. So moving from track to track on any given Beach Bums album can be a fun experience of unexpected turns in and of itself. They can turn to grunge on one song, then flip to some loungey jazz crooner on the next. The band has a good pool of talent on its roster to be able to string together a diverse array of songs and be able to pull off all the changes in musical direction they take along the way.
