Beach Riot were born when guitarist/vocalist Cami Menditeguy made the decision to up-sticks and move halfway across the world to East London from her home country of Argentina at just 18. Desperate to front her own band, living on a remote horse farm alone was no longer an option; so, to raise funds for the move, Cami made her flight money by gambling on horse races. Meeting fellow guitarist/vocalist Rory O'Connor at a show in East London-and finding a shared love for ice-cream, weird guitars, PJ Harvey, Mudhoney, 4am mozzarella sticks, dark comedy, dungeons and dragons, and Brighton beach hangover fry-ups-at last Beach Riot were born, and the gamble had paid off.
The band released their self-titled debut EP Beach Riot in 2018, with a string of standalone singles 'She's A Hurricane' (2017), 'Serial Scruff' (2018), 'Robot' (2019) and 'Stuck Inside' (2019) keeping momentum and buzz around the band's potent blend of lo-fi drone rock, heavy riffs, and indie pop.
Following the bands signing to Alcopop! Records in early 2020, Beach Riot have gone on to release a number of singles, and are currently recording their Debut Album due for release June 2021.
