Keeping up with our premiere Tuesday, we are pleased to team up with Drew Beskin for the release of his new single “Pharmacy Girl,” off his upcoming album Nostalgia Porn. As the album itself entitles, the song draws inspiration from the mellow days of 60s Rock and Roll a la Beach Boys and much modern 80s Alternative Rock with the poignant guitar melodies and overall vocals reminiscent of The Cure’s Robert Smith.
About the song, Beskin comments:
“My friend, Rick Poss, came over to my apartment to jam in the winter of 2017. Rick’s main instrument is the sleigh bell and he came up with this amazing sleigh bell composition that became the foundation for “Pharmacy Girl”. The song builds up to a very intense guitar and sleigh bell solo duet at the end. It is one of my favorite songs on the album. I was listening to “They Dont Know” by Kirsty MacColl a lot at the time and I wanted to have something in my song arsenal that paid tribute to that type of tune.”
