The indie surf band Beach Bunny has finally released their long-awaited Audiotree live session. Beach Bunny is the stage name of Lili Trifilio who plays guitar and vocals and includes Matt Henkels on guitar, Aidan Cada on bass, and Jonathan Alvarado on drums. Created in 2015, Beach Bunny has four EPs out and now a live session with Audiotree.
Personally, I recommend that you watch the video of their session because then you will get the chance to see how well this band jams out together. While watching I couldn't help but to feel the nostalgia of being in high school and being able to play in a band of people just having fun together. After all, this feeling fits in perfectly with Trifilio's description for their most recently released EP "Prom Queen" which is, "a collection of feelings from my high school diary."
Beach Bunny has been described as "Zooey-Deschanel-meets-the-Beach-Boys-type-vibe," but she describes herself as "sad surf honey tries to ride the biggest wave in the Midwest." This all makes sense when you listen to her music and feel the surfer vibes mixed with her upbeat power-pop melodies even if at their core her lyrics lay more on the sad side. If you're looking for something different than the usual sad, angry, indie song Beach Bunny is where it's at.
Recently Trifilio has managed to release both an acoustic rendition of the song "Boys" and a Christmas song before Beach Bunny started their tour with Field Medic, The Front Bottoms, and Manchester Orchestra. They also have a music video out for the song "Painkiller" that Trifilio describes as "someone being attacked by beauty standards."
