February 17, 2023 – Breakthrough alternative trio Beach Weather, return today with their newest single,“Hard Feelings,” a taste of what’s still to come from their forthcoming debut Pineapple Sunrise out on March 3rd. The sunny jam embodies the universal feeling of falling hard for someone — with itsupbeat melody and driving rhythm it’s an instant feel-good anthem.
Shares the band, “This is probably the most playful track on the album. Thatfeeling when you forget about that someone and somehow they appear out of nowhere and you’re infatuated.”
“Hard Feelings” follows the band’s latest single “Homebody,” and additional tracks “Trouble With This Bed,” and “Unlovable.” They recently made their late night debut with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where they performed their breakout hit “Sex, Drugs, Etc.” The band continues to breakthrough in every arena of the alternative space with the hit single, which has tallied north of 400M+ streams and shows no signs of slowing down (12 million streams weekly). The track is still Top 10 Alt ( #1 most played at KROQ and 98.7) sincereaching #1 this past October. Last month, Beach Weather also shared agorgeous, reimagined version of “Sex, Drugs, Etc. (Stripped Down)” and you can listen here.

With various musical experiences under their respective belts, Beach Weather initially formed back in 2015. The friendship between Nick and Sean even dated back at least a decade prior. As the story goes, they served up a series of EPs—Chit Chat, What A Drag, and Basement Sessions—and logged quite afew miles on the road, building an audience one show at a time.
Since then, life has happened. Nick built a career in graphic design, gotmarried, and became a dad (twice). Sean furthered his career in music production and songwriting. Reeve survived a tornado and got engaged but also stayed in the industry – touring and writing for Nashville artists, and editing for a video production company. The guys kept in touch. Nick remembers, “The conversations keep circling back to a mutual desire to make music together again. It turned into, ‘if you guys were down, I’d be down.’”
While living in three separate states, the band remotely started sharing voicememos, titles, and ideas that eventually evolved into Pineapple Sunrise. Around the same time, “Sex, Drugs, Etc.” organically caught fire. A sync on Spanish-language NETFLIX drama Control Z stirred up initial buzz. On social media, TikTok users implemented the song in a myriad of ways, touching every facet of culture from Stranger Things to K-pop.
“We never thought ‘Sex, Drugs, Etc.’ would be the song people gravitate to,” he admits. “I can relate to the meaning of it personally. It’s about having anxiety. Idon’t really go out. I’m not a big party guy. I’m the opposite; I’m a homebody. It’samazing to see a lot of listeners identify with it.”
They’ll undoubtedly identify with what the band has in store on PineappleSunrise as well. The single “Unlovable” begins with a laidback verse punctuated by claps. It culminates on a chantable chorus awash in fuzzy distortion as Nick pleads, “Oh no, oh my God, how’d I get so damn unlovable?”
“In a way, it’s a self-deprecating anthem,” he observes. “You feel crazy, you’retrying to figure out your own brain, and you’re locked out of your own head. You ask, ‘Why am I unlovable?’ It’s a relatable idea though. Musically, there’s a lot of energy to it. It’s one of the heavier rock tracks, but it’s still Beach Weather.”
“When you listen to us, I hope you feel like you discovered something new and fresh,” he concludes. “All of our songs are different from one another. We want you to play our music on a long drive through the desert or at the beach relaxingat night. We’ve all experienced so much in and out of music. Now, we found our comfort zone with Beach Weather, and we’re just kind of loving it.”
