about

The Boys are back with the antidote for your almost-Summer doldrums. Their new Addiction EP is a slightly rough-hewn (just the way we like it) pop-rock double blast! Drawing on the energy of their live set, BOTB turn the amps up and crash through "I Hate This Addiction" and (my fav) "It's Alright, It's OK". A must add to your Soundtrack of Summer playlist! - Paul Chastain (The Small Square, Velvet Crush)

"I Hate This Addiction" is really great song. I am absolutely knocked out!!!! This stuff is GREAT! Wow! I LOVE the production and the recording it's just fabulous. I wish you much sucess with this it's really very good! - Mimi Betinis (Pezband)

"Boys On The Beach EP, Addiction, is excellent! They are crafting excellent songs and melodies. They also are rocking good fun live!! They are good friends of Lolas, and we had a great time with them when we were in Japan!!" - Tim Boykin (Lolas)

I've been listening to Japanese band, Boys On The Beach. Their new "Addiction," EP, is classic noisy guitar pop with great melodies. Highlly recommended by me. Get on it! - Daniel Wylie (Cosmic Rough Riders)

BOYS ON THE BEACH’s Addiction EP is great! Crunchy guitars and tons of hooks! Elements of every great power pop band abound, from the Beatlesque harmonies and Robin Zanderesque lead vocals, but still BOYS ON THE BEACH sound fresh and modern. To say that “I Hate This Addiction” and “It’s Alright, It’s OK” are catchy would be a gross understatement. Highly recommended! - Frank C. Gradishar (Thrift Store Halo)

Great work!
Boys on the Beach explodes with their new release “Addiction EP”. Both songs from these sessions are insanely catchy, hook-ladened power pop. But this Tokyo based outfit is not just about the hook. These guys write carefully crafted songs with clever turns to keep you guessing and inspire multiple listens.
“I Hate This Addiction” is a smartly written analogy for television taking away ones inspiration. This while the driving beat and professional production bring the power pop era to a new generation.
“It’s Alright, It’s OK” is a romp through the Cheap Trick, ELO & the Who vaults to create a expertly produced gem of a power pop song with a chorus that I dare you to forget!
Highly Recommended! - Chris Korzen (Nezrok)

"I like music best when it's fearless. The Boys On The Beach have released a new EP called "Addiction EP" with two great songs. It's clear to me that these guys aren't scared of anything. "Addiction" merges a great pop song with some serious Ramones style aggression, which sits perfectly with the lyrics. "It's Alright, It's OK" is reminiscent of Cotton Mather and The Apples In Stereo, but with a straightforward "we came here to rock" sound. The Boys On The Beach are fearless, and it reminds me of why I love music so much in the first place." - Nick Bertling (bertling noise laboratories)

Track Name: I Hate This Addiction
I don't have to wait until the end until the end
I just want it any other way
I don't have to wait until the end until the end
I wanna live for today
This story is for only you and me
I hate this addiction
This addiction is breaking my imagination
I hate this addiction
I just hate
I hate this addiction

I don't have to wait for that change has come
for that change has come
I never want you to make me high
I don't have to wait for that change has come
for that change has come
I gotta take you to the sky
'cause I know that's all you need
I hate this addiction
This addiction is breaking my imagination
I hate this addiction
I just hate
I hate this addiction

I never want to make you sad
I don't need anybody's help
Don't look back on the past
We're standing here
We're standing here right now

I never want to let you down
I just want to be happy with you
Oh Please please please
Save my soul
Help me from this addiction
This addiction is breaking my imagination
I hate this addiction
I just hate
I hate this addiction
Track Name: It's Alright, It's OK
あの娘と夢で逢えた朝は
わりと空は晴れなんだ
泣きながら家を飛び出すのは
旅の始まりなんだ
正しいことする勇気がなくて
伏し目がちになるのは君だけじゃない
英雄になれないから
日々をただ過ごしているわけじゃない
It's Alright, It's OK
It's Alright

あの感覚思い出す時もあるさ
I never want to feel the pain
青春時代は淡くて脆いから
僕らは幻を追うんだ
悲しみに慣れるのが怖くて
涙流したくなるのは僕だけじゃない
永遠なんてないから
僕らはこうして日々を確かめる
It's Alright, It's OK
It's Alright

夢の中の恋なんてないのさ
I know it
You know it
I want you to wake me up
君だってそうさ
Baby you know it
