DeadSplinter Up! All Night: We Were Jump Rope Gazers

New Zealand indie pop band and one of my all-time favorites, The Beths released Jump Rope Gazers, the follow up to their 2018 debut Future Me Hates Me. The band is made up of lead vocalist and guitarist Elizabeth Stokes, guitarist Jonathan Pearce, bassist Benjamin Sinclair, and drummer Tristan Deck. The band is known for their use of four-part vocal harmony. I love their bright, poppy sound and their expressive and deeply sincere lyrics.

In an interview with Carolyn Droke from Uproxx’s Indie Mixtape, Stoke’s described the Jump Rope Gazers music video, “…as a total heart-breaker, huge feelings track, and it was clear from the first listen that Sports Team had to go bigger than ever to match the calibre. So, we shot a 5-minute sci-fi alien adventure romance.”

Thank you for your continued support of DeadSplinter.
