"Beachy and fun, this band is sort of like a Ronettes meets Black Lips mash up." ~ Brooklyn Exposed
"They are like the band that sonically beats-up the resident surf rock bands. Cut from the same cloth as Dum Dum Girls, Raveonettes, Black Lips and all the others I feature here on a normally basis, Beach Day have a slick and steady 60s garage rock sounds with those girl group vocals you crave." ~ Music Snobbery
"a truly distinct air of youthful rebelliousness and manic playfulness"
~ Consequence of Sound
"Beach Day specializes in a beachy (duh), garage-minded breed of girl-group pop. Indeed, this wellspring goes back about 50 years, and lots of young acts are reviving it now, but this band's interpretation is so natural and incandescent that they make it feel completely fresh again. They have all the romantic nostalgia that you want from this fare but with just enough garage grit to be au courant. But their universal virtue is their rare melodic gift. Most of their ilk simply don't have the stunningly easygoing songwriting instinct that Beach Day does. And that's the difference. It's basic but it's everything. It's why all their songs sound like singles. Moreover, singer Kimmy Drake has the true voice of a girl-group leading lady, something like a young, white Ronnie Spector raised on punk."
~ Orlando Weekly
With an uninhibited musical dynamic that could only be birthed from three friends, Amanda X delivers with ethereal vocal harmonies, heavy hits and solid guitar work. Formed serendipitously in late spring of last year, Amanda X's members set to work and self-released their first EP on tape a few months later.
Currently Amanda X are recording their first full length album with Jeff Zeigler of Uniform Recording. The band hopes to release the new full length sometime in early 2014. Amanda X is comprised of Cat Park of Bandname on guitar and vocals, Kat Bean on bass and vocals and Tiff Yoon on drums.
