Los Angeles’ BEGINNERS are streaming two further tracks from their forthcoming debut EP. ‘Ever Love’ was premiered on Impose with ‘Let Go Or Get Dragged’ receiving its first post on DIY Magazine.

The brainchild of Samantha Barbera, songwriter and singer/bassist in hardcore punk band Holy Fever, and Nick Ruth, who’s produced artists including Mikky Ekko and Active Child, BEGINNERS delivers well-crafted elements of garage rock with dark electronic pop hooks that fans of Santigold, Cults, Phantogram, Tegan and Sara, and Chromatics will be sure to appreciate. Barbera’s attitude-tinged vocals carry the intensity and passion of an artist like Karen O, while Ruth’s production captures a moody landscape fit for Depeche Mode’s ‘Violator’.

The debut BEGINNERS EP will be released on March 24th, 2014. Tour dates to follow.
