LOCASH’s new song, “Beach Boys” is out now, March 4th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.
LOCASH is joined by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys on their new single – which just so happens to share a name with the iconic band.
The duo was invited to join The Beach Boys (and John Stamos) on stage to a sold-out show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium back in February to perform “Beach Boys” live for the first time, ahead of its release and as a part of The Beach Boys 60th anniversary celebration.
“Beach Boys” was originally released as a solo version on LOCASH’s WOODS & WATER – EP before it found its way to The Beach Boys themselves. The song is written by LOCASH’s Chris Lucas and Preston Brust, alongside Dallas Wilson, Jared Mullins, Brian Wilson, and Mike Love.
On how the song and the collaboration came together, Brust shares: “The day we wrote ‘Beach Boys,’ I remember Chris and I dreaming of recording it with The Beach Boys. We never imagined that they’d hear it, let alone get the chance to lay down our parts with Mike [Love] and Bruce [Johnston] and actually feel like we were a part of a group that we’ve idolized for so long! It’s crazy how it all became a reality and now the fun really begins!”
Love, of The Beach Boys, then shared: “We had a blast collaborating with Chris and Preston of LOCASH! The song is so hooky – I can’t get it out of my head. I love mixing it up! Country Rock met Surf Rock and created a fun summer hit!”
“Beach Boys” opens with the classic hook from The Beach Boys’ iconic hit, “I Get Around” and continues to mesh The Beach Boy’s chill summer vibes with LOCASH’s outlaw country style and energy. In a song where the beach meets backwoods (or rather, woods meet water), you can’t help but want to drop what you’re doing and head for the beach.
“Let’s take the country to the beach boys // trade that red dirt in for sand // Show ‘em how we Tennessee boys // Catch a Jon boat buzz on a Catamaran // And get a little bit of red on my redneck // Drop a lime in the bottom of a long neck // Find a boat that floats and get shipwrecked // With some local honey // Let’s take the country to the beach boys”
LOCASH is nominated for Duo of the Year at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards, live from Las Vegas on Monday, March 7th. LOCASH’s WOODS & WATER TOUR 2022 kicks off tonight, March 4th in West Chester, OH and has 21 more dates to follow including Wildwood, NY on June 19th as part of the Barefoot Country Music Fest.
