Canadian alt-rock group, The Beaches have released their new single, “Me & Me”, taken from their upcoming sophomore LP, Blame My Ex, out September 15th. Serving as the third single from their highly-anticipated album, “Me & Me” is a spirited, infectious anthem for anyone overcoming the perils of being single.
The track swiftly captures listeners’ attention with its escalating tempo, eventually culminating in a beach-y, soft rock jam perfectly suited for the summer. Throughout the song, an infectious guitar riff rolls smoothly in the background while the distinctive alto of lead singer Jordan Miller asserts the group’s determination to conquer heartache and loneliness with moxie: “save your pity, bitch / it’s kind of fun, just me and me / won’t waste my life self-loathing.” High-spirited and addictive, “Me & Me” is yet another perfect example of the charismatic spunk that distinguishes The Beaches as one of contemporary rock’s rising stars.
“Me & Me” serves as a follow-up to The Beaches’ previous single, “Blame Brett,” released late spring. The hit track was accompanied by a music video that encapsulates the group’s playfully irreverent, free-spirited brand of cool-girl rock. In a bold warning to all future lovers, frontwoman Jordan Miller sings, “I’m sorry in advance / I’m only gonna treat you bad / I’m probably gonna let you down / I’m probably gonna sleep around […] but don’t blame me, blame Brett”. “Blame Brett” serves as a compelling, angsty anthem for all members of the broken hearts club and to date has over 5 million Spotify streams, reached #1 on Canadian Alternative Radio, and peaked at #21 on Spotify’s Daily Viral 100.
