Beatsteaks is a band I’ve been following ever since high school, when I got big into the Punk scene. They’re from Berlin and even though they’re branded as Punk, they don’t really follow the typical sound and look of the genre.
‘Cut off the Top’ is easily one of my all time favourite tracks by them especially for the vocals, the scattered electronic elements and of course those Ska-ish guitar hooks. It’s a genre in itself.
The video is a lot of fun too, with hints of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. This is exactly what you need on a Monday.
