Beach Baby, a band born of a city many miles from the sea, manage to capture the sound of the coast on their debut record No Mind No Money. Since rumbling onto the scene last year with 'Ladybird', they've been comfortably expanding their following of fans across the UK.

Their debut album opens on a best-of suite, the punchy 'Limousine' has a wobbling Strokes style guitar thread, snarling percussion and a Justin Young drawl. It is a masterclass in indie anthem; skittering, unsteady, never overstaying its welcome. Precarious riffs lead faultlessly into 'Lost Soul' with its bombastic chorus that screams set closer, a truly hopeless hymnal.

The title track is simplistic, optimistic and far more sun-drenched than the openers, complemented by rugged vocals and psychedelic Parquet Courts like percussion. Speaking of the record, the band commented "we hope that it manages to be both playful and sincere." Often the lightness of some of the melodies and harmonies belie some slightly murkier lyrical sketches. Stand out single 'Sleeperhead' echoes this sentiment. It is proudly mischievous, lead vocalists Ollie and Lawrence considering the benefits of healthy living with an ironic sneer. The disdain of the 9 - 5 lifestyle borders on the grotesque yet this alienation is assured to unite the 3am collective who will exhaust their vinyl copy.

Preceding drop off for the weighty 'Smoke Won't Get Me High' which arduously drag itself along before 'Hot Weather' whiles away at its own placid pace. 'U R' is an astronomical high point, a perfectly crafted slacker pop track that is equal parts sand and strongbow. The rolling percussion and kaleidoscope strings foreshadow what is to come, gleaming like the sun at its highest point. 'Bug Eyed and Blonde Haired' is music for the sunset, a dreamy drawn out instrumental breakdown similar to Warpaint's Exquisite Corpse EP.

This album is not without its faults, yet as a debut it is well executed. The label has respected the artistic choices of the quartet, the tracks are not contrived and reflect the band's musicianship, songwriting and intent. No Mind No Money is an album as comfortable on the beach as the basement with qualities that warrant repeat plays without losing any of its charm.
