The band Kings Of The Beach was born in Vigo in the summer of 2013 with Adrián Rodríguez (guitar, voice), Yago Guirado (bass, vocals) and Samuel Otero (drums).
At the beginning of 2015 they published their first demo tape, ‘Badass’, hitting hard in the Galician scene. A year later, in February of 2016, they published their first EP, ‘Bat Pussy’, obtaining national and international repercussion and causing a good impression in media like Radio 3 or MondoSonoro, among others.
Their sound can be defined as wild, beachy and fast, like a slap in the face. Compared to Together Pangea, The Orwells, or even Fidlar, they can brag about their “fast, sweaty and kick-ass” live shows.
Following their success at the 2016 Monkey Week festival, Kings Of The Beach is seen as one of the young Galician promises. A group to take very much into account within the national music scene in the future.
