Single Review: Beafets – Open Letter

East Kilbride, indie four-piece Beafets released their new single Open Letter earlier this month and we have had it on repeat since! Trust us when we say that it definitely worth checking out.

With melodic guitar riffs, buoyant rhythm guitar and poetic lyrics, Open Letter is reminiscent of bands such as The Libertines, Arctic Monkeys and The Last Shadow Puppets. Open Letter presents a softer, intimate side of the indie genre – something which these artists have also been known to do throughout their career.

It is clear when listening to Open Letter that Beafets understand how to take influence from those who have moulded ‘indie’ into what we know and love today. However, Open Letter is not an attempt at a direct copy of popular tracks from these artists.

By introducing elements of pop and rock, particularly in the track’s chorus, and presenting personal, emotive lyrics which tell of the breakdown of a relationship, Beafets have created a stellar example of how to present indie music in a refreshing and original way, without simply imitating their influences.
