Reminders, the Isle of Wight Indie Punks, drop first single on Venn Records 

To celebrate the release of their debut album Best of Beach Punk, Remindersunleash the official video for lead single ‘Carousel’.

Isle of Wight indie punks Reminders have just announced that they have signed to Venn Records in the UK and Wiretap Records In the States for their debut album Best of Beach Punk, which is set for release on April 1st, 2022.

To celebrate the news, the band have released the official video for lead single ‘Carousel’.

Commenting on the track, frontman Leo Dyke says: “I would literally sit and watch the wheels go round, having mundane, dull thoughts while getting sunburnt and watching other people enjoy their summer. Everyone’s on a different carousel—it’s a metaphor asking if the routine you’re stuck in that’s going round and round will ever break, or if you just sit there and let it continue to happen.”

Reminders approach punk rock from where they know it best: a forgotten seaside town. Formed on the Isle of Wight in 2017, the band cut their teeth writing songs about teenage lust and suburban boredom, gaining attention after independently releasing Water Sports and Major Cities.

Fresh-faced and excited, the then-teenagers coined their sound ‘beach punk’, a tongue-in-cheek ode to their hometown that they stand by today.

Firmly solidifying their identity as a breakneck but pop-tinged punk band, Reminders work to introduce themselves to anybody willing to listen. After an unexpected hiatus during COVID, which delayed the release of their album, the band are now raring and ready to go with their new label homes at Venn and Wiretap and forthcoming tour dates. 

The band, who have already shared stages with rock legends Liam Gallagher and The Killers, are set to head out on their first run of UK tour dates in February 2022, supporting fellow Isle of Wight punks Grade 2, followed by March/April headline dates with tickets on sale now.
