The Beths

Album Review: Future Me Hates Me by The Beths (7/10)

The Beths are a female fronted quartet from the “other Down Under”—New Zealand! Their song “Future Me Hates Me,” with its self-explanatory hilarious title, would be a number one hit in a perfect Top 40 universe. The Beths excel at snappy, perfectly played, guitar-heavy (and catchy!) power pop. If you ask me, the band’s secret weapon (besides Elizabeth’s voice) is their sheer speed and velocity––the music has the drive of the Ramones and the Buzzcocks, with deliciously harmonic lead guitar. Zoom on in!

Rating: 7/10
