Continuing a breakthrough year with a #1 alternative radio hit, 3-piece alternative pop-rock band, Beach Weather – comprised of Nick Santino [vocals, guitar], Reeve Powers [bass], and Sean Silverman [guitar/production] – share a new single and music video entitled “Trouble With This Bed” today via Arista Records . The track leans into glassy synths and a steady beat as Santino sings, “I don’t want to be a loner left alone .” Listen to “Trouble With This Bed” — HERE . Watch the music video for “Trouble With This Bed” — HERE.
About the song, Santino shares, “Trouble With This Bed is a song about the melancholy loneliness we all fall victim to from time to time. Whether it’s longing for a lost flame, a past love or the struggle of leaving the security and safety of your own bed. It is a love song as much as it is a song about grief and self reflection. The poet David Whyte said that… “The first step in spending time alone is to admit how afraid of it we are..” I think that rings true for this song.”
The accompanying visual focuses on a couple in bed, ebbing and flowing between moments of connection and disconnection. Simultaneously, the clip intercuts the trio’s cozy performance from a bed as well.
On the video, Silverman adds that, “The video tried to tap into that deep feeling of melancholy where you begin to almost feel trapped. In this case by playing out all the different scenarios of a relationship. From lust to heartbreak and everything in between. It all sort of culminates around the different types of loss and longing that we all go through. We play a fly on the wall role throughout the video, as a makeshift guide through the different revolving storylines.“
“Trouble With This Bed” arrives on the heels of “Unlovable , ” which The Hidden Hits
proclaimed, “With fuzzy distortions and anthemic choruses, ‘Unlovable’ delivers Beach Weather ’s star quality we’ve been missing for years,” and christened it “an infectious radio-ready hit.”
Meanwhile, their massive single “Sex, Drugs, Etc.” has tallied north of 300M+ streams and counting (12 million streams weekly), soared to #12 on the
Billboard Hot Alternative chart and #40 on the Emerging Artist chart while peaking at #53 on the Spotify Global chart, #51 on the US chart and #32 on the UK chart. The band also made waves at radio when the track hit #1 on Alternative radio . The band is excited to announce they will perform the song for their late night tv debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! On November 28th at 11:35PM/10:35 PM CT on ABC.
This fall, you’ll be able to hear “ Trouble With This Bed ” and much more during the band’s high-energy live show. They are currently touring the U.S. and recently played a sold-out NYC show with The Maine at Pier 17 and a sold out Brooklyn
headlining show at The Sultan Room. Remaining dates for this year can be found below. Tickets are available for purchase here.
The band will kick off their 2023 with a performance at iHeart ALTer Ego on January 14, 2023 at Kia Forum in LA alongside Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Jack White, Muse, Fall Out Boy, CHVRCHES, and Rosa Linn.

About Beach Weather:
Beach Weather catch a vibe somewhere between the most disparate of extremes. They write hooks melodic enough for the prom king and queen to sing along to, yet introspective enough for even the most introverted wallflower to ponder. Their breezy guitars and sun-soaked choruses barely veil an honest exploration of emotional tumult, anxiety, and loneliness. Musically, the group—Nick Santino [vocals, guitar], Reeve Powers [bass], and Sean Silverman [production]—teeter on an axis of nostalgic melodies and future-facing provocation. With various musical experiences under their respective belts, Beach Weather initially formed back in 2015. The friendship between Nick and Sean even dated back at least a decade prior. As the story goes, they served up a series of EPs— Chit Chat, What A Drag, and Basement Sessions—and logged quite a few miles on the road, building an audience one show at a time. After mutually parting ways in 2017, the guys “talked almost every day.” By 2020, they started writing music again. Around the same time, “Sex, Drugs, Etc.” organically caught fire. A sync on Spanish-language NETFLIX drama Control Z stirred up initial buzz. On social media, TikTok users implemented the song in a myriad of ways, touching every facet of culture from Stranger Things to K-pop. The success transferred over to streaming platforms as the track amassed millions of streams. With over 300 million-plus streams and a #1 alternative radio hit, they frame this distinct vision perfectly on their 2022 singles “Unlovable” and “Trouble With This Bed”.
