BEAT!BEAT!BEAT! - Fireworks -- Lightmares (2010)

Up next is the first band from Germany. We came close with Germany Germany like a month ago but that is actually a Canadian project like I said in that post. This time it's about BEAT!BEAT!BEAT!, not sure if the capital letters are necessary as well don't I know if there should be a space behind every exclamation mark. I found a lot of different options on how to spell their name, but this is how I know them, but feel free to correct me in the comments. 

The band is from the region of Cologne, which actually is close to the border with Belgium. So we almost had an extra excellent band in our small country. So close! The band plays Indie Rock and has released an ep, named Stars in 2009. Their debut album, Lightmares, is the album I'll talk about briefly here. It's a very good record in my opinion with catchy tunes on it. It mostly is indie guitar rock, but this is mixed with songs that have a more synthesizer, poppy character really. Vocals are very decent as well and it manages to entertain you for about 40 minutes. Better known songs on the record are Fireworks, We Are Waves and You're a Designer. Where the last of these three is one of the songs that focuses more on the synthesizers while the others are regular indie guitar rockish tracks. After this very decent debut records it's a bit silent around these four lads, and I sincerely hope they are still active! 

The song I chose to post for you guys is Fireworks, which was on the ep as well. Whilst it's not my favorite by the band it is a very close second. My favorite track is One Day In The Woods, but it isn't on the album. I don't know if it came out before or after the album really, I just found out about them in 2012 so I'm a bit fuzzy on the details, haha. But yes, if you like Fireworks feel free to check out the other video as well (click the link), and certainly check out the Lightmares album. It proved difficult to find a working download link, but it's worth it! Enjoy
