Lazer Beam’s self-titled album will be released on 19th March 2021 on Coffin & Bolt Records / Golden Robot Records.
Sink Or Swim is utterly unique with a driving desert rock landscape fused with a shot of grunge and a dash of intricate dream pop just to top it off. Part Queens of Stone Age, part Alice In Chains and Royal Blood and some intricate 80s New Wave overtones
“The music is spilling over with infectious, fuzz powered riffs, deep grooves, dance beats, and nearly irresistible presence.” – RIFF RELEVANT
ABOUT LAZER BEAM
Lucust French has always been heavy, somewhat demented but never anything less than original. Much like his work with former outfit Burn Thee Insects (formed by French and his father Mitch in 2015) Lazer Beam’s music is practically carved from industry and ingenuity.
Choosing to record his music outside with a generator, just as no two stars are ever the same, for his self-titled debut we’re treated to songs cut in the heart of Prescott National Forest, East Maricopa County, and countless other locations with help of friend and producer Chris Hughes (Burn Thee Insects, KOOK, Phantom Hound).
Spurred on by the history of stoner rock and influenced by bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, Devo, Royal Blood and Arctic Monkeys, with a range of sounds that devour the desert landscape; whilst Lazer Beam might pull inspiration from past experiences with drug and alcohol abuse, thankfully, he now rides high on autonomy and hopefulness.
Lazer Beam brings out the dance in heavy rock & roll music, songs that are faster and more aggressive, while mostly retaining an androgynous voice behind the music.
