I’ll be honest before listening to Vampire Beach Babes their name through me a little off, it reminded me of all the vampire related material that’s been going on within the pop-culture recently, but after having listened to Castles In The Sand, I was more than impressed.
I was hooked after the first song, honestly impressed with their alternative goth trance sound. A lot of heavy synth, which is something I’ve personally missed. Giving a mix of new age house goth with a taste of 80’s dance, gives it a nostalgic feeling but something new at the same time.
Creepy Baby is probably my personal favorite off the album. Reminding me of bands like She Wants Revenge, and classic swing music. The chose a really different sound, more relaxed then forced trance. The female vocals on the song The Wave, was really catchy and reminded me of something out of a classic 70’s song.
All in all, Vampire Beach Babes is a different sound, with the same basic routes, making them easily a favorite. Though not is found much about the background of the group itself, the two main musicians are Baron and Bunny, Baron being the founder, and Bunny being a member since 1997.
