Southampton’s Beat Easton like to keep themselves to themselves. Finding time away from their respective university degrees, the three-piece broke their consecutive show record last month touring the UK with I Love Your Lifestyle, (a further sacrifice entailed a stint in the recording and CD burning department). Much like it’s 2013 predecessor, In Situ lends itself to bands like Death Cab For Cutie and Empire! Empire!, laying on levels of reverby, sweeping guitars. Though as is often the case with Beat Easton it’s the vocal game which is just as strong.
