Wash in the Rain
There is only one thing you need to know about The Bees to gain a fair idea of this single: they recorded it at the Abbey Road Studios. OK, so it’s not quite a Beatles’ wannabe record but my god it sounds so sixties – complete with Hammond organ. There are more modern touches to it like the guitar solo which is alright but can be overly reminiscent of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s ‘Fever’ (now there’s an irony). The Bee’s seem to cover a wide range of musical styles and I think they could turn out to be a very promising band. But this single doesn’t show the full picture. Not what I’d call an outstanding record, more inoffensive Topshop music.
