Beach rock without a hint of Dick Dale courtesy of Seattle’s iji. “Eastern Beach,” the new single from the forthcoming Whatever Will Happen, is a sultry, summer trek down the right coast with frontman Zach Burba’s words bobbing along just like the ocean.
Converting a collection of travel poems into an album’s worth of material, iji will issue Whatever Will Happen on 2 June. With song titles like “Cruisin’ USA,” “Parking Lot Palms” and “Crumbs & Wires,” Whatever Will Happen is a look inside the the mind of a traveler in love with life, sharing its highs and lows in peculiar fashion.
