Behind the Binge
“Their mix of sweetly wry jangle and artsy quirkiness keep it real whilst also keeping it fun.” — Fuzzy Logic
On their new LP Signals, Philly via NYC via Durham via Seattle jangle-pop duo Beloved Binge meld down-tuned post-punk with whiplash psychedelica into an elastic, spastic melodic tilt-a-whirl. Rob Beloved (guitar, low-voice, drums) and Eleni Binge (drums, high-voice, guitar, bouzouki, bass uke, keys, license plate) are spending late adolescence making perfectly disheveled high-tension pop in a punk pot with a hint of old Greek mountain village uprising.
Drawing from early immersion in classical music, music comedy, Velvet Underground, and Greek folk, and funded from the happy performance of some stock in the Beyond Meat company, Beloved and Binge have taken their “tiny house” ethos to heart, both in their lives and their music.
Signals (10/11/19) is the sixth Beloved Binge record, is a reflection on and meditation upon the bands brief time as residents of New York; aging and living in an indifferent concrete anonymity that, through becoming “safe”, became soulless and sterile. As is their want, on this newest LP the band grapple with profoundly serious issues – early death, border and body policy, human’s relationship to the animals they consume – with characteristic playfulness. Beyond this, they showcase the power of the absurd to help transcend despair; some lyrics are based on items in a tiny storage practice space they shared in Durham.
