New album, Somersault, is out now via Bayonet Records.

After nearly ten years exploring their own brand of dream pop, it is safe to say that New York’s Beach Fossils have become stalwarts of the scene. On June 2nd the group released their 3rd, and most adventurous album, Somersault. We recently spoke to Dustin Payseur, who originally started Beach Fossils as a one man project, about giving up some creative control, doing exactly what he wants, and constant evolution.
