Freakout Standouts: Baywitch

Playing what was predominately a psych-surf themed night at the KEXP Audioasis stage at the Sunset Tavern, chill-goth trio Baywitch brought to the table their own ideas of what that sounds like. Self dubbed "antisurf," which is the cleverly infectious meld of anti-folk and surf rock, Baywitch created an near subsea experience on the Sunset's stage for their Saturday Freakout set.

With all the colorful lights creating an aquamarine experience, Baywitch rocked through tracks off their early summer album Hellaspawn. Fetching, fast-paced riffs mask some pretty doomy themes, like having panic attacks because of pot brownies as told on “I.O.D.T.H.C.” or how "Black Holes" describes the overwhelming turmoil of the fascist movement happening across the country. Their sounds are, however, charming enough that it's easy to forget there's real life subject matter in their lyrics.

Baywitch have got quite a few shows coming up and more details on them can be found here.
