The Beths announce their new album, Jump Rope Gazers, out July 10th via Carpark Records, and share its lead single/video, “Dying to Believe.” Jump Rope Gazers is the follow-up to Future Me Hates Me, “one of the most impressive indie-rock debuts of the year” (Pitchfork).
The album received glowing praise and appeared on many year-end lists including Rolling Stone, NPR, Stereogum, and more. The album saw The Beths awarded Best Alternative Act and Best Group at the 2019 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards. The Beths were also finalists for last year’s Taite Prize and Silver Scroll Award in 2018 and 2019.
Jump Rope Gazers tackles themes of anxiety and self-doubt with effervescent power pop choruses and rousing backup vocals, zeroing in on the communality and catharsis that can come from sharing stressful situations with some of your best friends.
