Beauty Minus Beast

Chicago natives Beauty Minus Beast released their self-titled debut album in November 2013, which features elements of baroque pop mixed with folk, surf, and indie. Since then, they have recorded two independent singles, "Modern Times" and "Be Sad With Me", as well as having played shows around the city in promotion of their record.

    Running Shoes
    By Beauty Minus Beast
    Originally written with four-part harmonies and keys, Running Shoes became a track that instead counted on the negative space to tell its story. So when it came time to record, I chose to only do it with one guitar and one vocal, taken from a single take.

    I Don't Want To Fall In Love
    By Beauty Minus Beast
    Inspired by 'Pet Sounds' and late-60's reverb, this haunting ode to the heart that refuses to heal features many-layered vocals and a triumphant french horn.

    The Bird Path
    By Beauty Minus Beast
    This song is about a path in my hometown that I used to walk down in the summertime. It's pretty autobiographical.
