Beverly’s effortless indie rock debut is the result of a casual collaboration between honey-voiced guitarist Drew Citron and her occasional employer, former Dum Dum and Vivian Girl Frankie Rose. Citron’s own musical CV includes The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, while another career nodded to in the album’s title is Kim Deal’s. ‘Madora’ is the direct offspring of Pixies’ ‘Velouria’, and the feedback riddled ‘Planet Birthday’ and breathless garage of ‘Out On A Ride’ pass muster as out-takes from The Breeders’ ‘Last Splash’. Although the pure pop harmonies of ‘All The Things’ and ‘You Can’t Get It Right’ equal anything on Rose’s own albums, she’s already moved on, leaving Citron to take charge of this alluring project.
