Here's Plato Zorba's Stuff

Security Breach at the Beach

This past fall, Asbury Park cinematic, surf noir band, Plato Zorba, released the four-song Security Breach at the Beach to digital outlets. On May 26th, the band will celebrate the physical release of the EP -- as well as the unofficial start of summer -- at Wonder Bar. They'll be joining Igor & Red Elvises and The Brigantines for a Summer Kickoff Party.

Security Breach at the Beach combines guitar-centric surf and spy rock with a healthy dose of horns and keys. It opens with an instrumental cover of John Barry's "Beat Girl." The song's dark mystery and retro vibe are a good set up for the rest of the EP. The danceable "Lunch Battle" melds Robbie Butkowski's surfy guitar with some jazz-inspired organ from Ryan Gregg and sax from Chris Fitzgerald to show why Plato Zorba have a lot more going on than your run-of-the-mill surf band. Things even get kind of lounge-y on the title track. It's the background music at the kind of lounge where people are wearing dark sunglasses even with all the lights turned low.

Security Breach at the Beach is available now via Hi-Tide Recordings from wherever you like to get your digital music fix. Physical copies will be on sale at Wonder Bar for the Hi-Tide Recordings Summer Kickoff on Saturday, May 26th.
