First listen – BESTiE, ‘Infinity’
BESTiE releases their new EP Permanent Vacation today (Friday, May 20). It’s no “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” but the lead single “Infinity” is a feel-good, sun-dappled pop song that lives up to the band’s seeming desire Vancouver’s answer to Jimmy Buffet (with maybe a little Vampire Weekend thrown in for good measure). Permanent Vacation comes out tomorrow (May 20) thanks to Business Class Records.
BESTiE¬†formed in 2012 and released their first single, “Pineapple”, the following year. According to the band’s bio, “The song reached #25 on Hype Machine, received commercial radio airplay and was even featured on MTVís teen drama Awkward.”¬†They released two more videos in 2013 directed by lead singer Tristan Orchard, who is also a¬†Gemini-nominated filmmaker. In 2014, with the help of a $50,000 win in The Peak Performance Project, they released their debut full-length¬†No Bad Days in¬†2014.
Other members include¬†Daniel Ruiz (drums),¬†Rob Cameron (bass) and Graham Madden (guitar).
