MARK MENDY and THE BEAMISH BROTHERS, “Black Gasoline”
“Black Gasoline” has a driving, infectious groove that can’t miss. It’s an unexpected slice of alt.pop/rock marking the return of Italian producer Mark Mendy that also launches a musical direction change for Australia’s The Beamish Brothers (Ben and Jeremy), who have been go-to voices on many a dance record these past few years. “Black Gasoline” has crisp rock edges that carry a flow that doesn’t let up. The Beamishes’ voices fit like tight gloves in this setting, sometimes exuding pop vibes you’d find in songs by Shawn Mendes and Years & Years. So slice and dice it into whatever category or genre you want. However you like it “Black Gasoline” aims to please and hits the wide-appeal mark with ease.
