Norwegian metal rippers Kvelertak's power pop side shined through more than ever on last year's excellent Nattesferd (one of our favorites of 2016), so it's not too much of a surprise to learn that two members also have a power pop side project. Vidar (guitar) and Marvin (bass) formed the band Beachheads with Espen ("a metal drummer with a pop heart") and Børild (a "former synth-pop singer"). They released their first single in 2015, and now they're set to release their self-titled debut LP on February 3 via Fysisk Format (pre-order). So far four songs are out from that album, and we're premiering a fifth.

"Una" has a riff that could've been pulled from the Kvelertak catalog, but the other previously-released singles are driving power pop of the Weezer, Teenage Fanclub, and late-period Husker Du variety. The new song that we're premiering, "Give Me Som Love," is maybe their most sentimental song yet. It's a major-key jangly rocker that you could almost picture on a Go-Betweens album. Check it out, along with the other four songs, below.
