Beverly Girl brings back the 80’s - Automatic

Written by 

Tis the season to be Jolly!

Finnish band, Beverly Girl's new single might not be Christmassy, but it sure lifts the spirits all the way to the dance floor.

'Automatic' is the bands first cover version and hears them breath new life into a Millie Scott soul gem.

Released under the Finnish label Ranka Kustannus, the funky group have re-vitalised the 80's sound with a loving approach, making it feel completely authentic from that time. The electronic keys solo is a delight! And in real retro style, these chic cats have released the instrumental version too - nice!

The quality of this track shouldn't come as a surprise if you've listened any of their previous releases such as Contagious and Straight from the Heart.

Beverly Girl only announced their arrival earlier in the year and are already becoming recognised across Europe for their euphoric live shows, and representation of modern Finnish disco. And the Finns like their disco!

Plaudits have come quickly from DJs such as The Dutch Guy while UK magazine Record of the Day said: “If this groove doesn’t get to you, you might want to check your pulse!”

Beverly Girl is currently working on a special co-write release in LA with a highly influential artist/songwriter, whose identity will be revealed in early 2018.

We're looking forward to that!

    When you have spent the last twenty years building a solid reputation as a composer, arranger, orchestrator, and producer on a multitude of successful records, TV themes and multimedia scores, there is only one logical thing to do next. Release your own debut solo album.

    And that is exactly what Walkin’ On Air is, a chance for the Finnish creator Tomi Malm to work without any brief, restrictions or considerations and the result is a glorious collection of songs that range from elegant jazz-infused pop grooves, smokey funk boogies, emotive and soaring ballads and a host of creative genre fusions.

    Following on from their memorably Nordic dark R&B debut - Nectar, the Finnish/Dutch duo return with a new single, with a new sound - Mitwa.

    Despite the somewhat 'creepy' looking image, the 'golden boy' represents a more playful side to their R&B flavour.

    The lighter sound retains a deep, hypnotic bass, so infectiously good its hard to sit still.
