The Beths are a quartet from New Zealand who have recently signed to Carpark Records for the release of their debut album Future Me Hates Me, due on August 10th. Today they release the record's title track, a fluid indie rocker chock full of troublesome thoughts.

The band is led by Elizabeth Stokes, who has been toiling away in Auckland's folk scene for a number of years, but now turns her attention to good ol' rock with The Beths - something she had never considered before: “Fronting this kind of band was a new experience for me,” says Stokes. “I never thought I had the right voice for it.”

That's an extemely surprising admission from the singer, as her voice crests perfectly atop the bustling indie rock gait that The Beths set out, matching it measure for measure with propulsive and dedicated delivery. Even more than just her voice being a perfect fit, so are her lyrics of anxiety, sleeplessness and regret. This is tied up with a beautiful bow in the self-effacing chorus, where 'Future Me Hates Me' finds Stokes kicking out once and for all at her own self-destructiveness - but does it in such a blissful manner that we feel her resigning to live in the moment, and worry about the problems when they arise in the near future.
