Album: Yung Pinch – Back 2 The Beach
The Huntington Beach, CA Native Recruits Wiz Khalifa, blackbear, Good Charlotte, and More For His Wide-Ranging and Tuneful New Full-Length
Critical Praise for Yung Pinch
“Debut albums aren’t always easy, but on ‘Back 2 The Beach’ California’s Yung Pinch’s effortless, nonchalant delivery makes it sound a doddle. His pitchy, auto-tuned croons have always drawn fans far and wide, and with this record he’ll surely make a fan of you, even if just for a song or two.” — NME
“His music sounds like a day at the beach, the main draw for his fans, and his content is reminiscent of slightly more rhythmic Post Malone, with whom Pinch shares a fondness for mixing dorm rock with vibey trap beats.” — UPROXX
“Back 2 The Beach feels like the most honest version of Yung Pinch; it’s a polished album that leaves no questions about how well he knows himself or understands his journey.” — Earmilk
“Morally, Pinch tends to play the antihero, though who can really fault him when such temptations come with the territory. This is the beach, where the dress code is lax and a guitar riff can go a long way.” — HotNewHipHop
Twisting his soft tenor into indelible hooks, Yung Pinch crafts infectious and affecting songs about the highs and lows of beach life. Coming through with a wide-ranging and stylistically diverse artistic statement, Yung Pinch shares Back 2 The Beach, his latest album. A 16-track effort that bounces from hazy hedonism to thoughtful melancholia, Back 2 The Beach refines and expands Pinch’s signature sound. The new project displays a distinct alt rock influence, manifesting in Pinch’s sticky melodies and in the pristine production, which add gently-plucked acoustic and chugging electric guitars to Pinch’s familiar burbling synth melodies. Executive produced by alt-rap veteran Cisco Adler, Back 2 The Beach reflects Pinch’s conflicts with fame and his desire to remain grounded in the face of success.
The new album features previously released singles like the Wiz Khalifa-featuring “Over It,” and the yawning trap ballad “Sober.” Earlier this month, Pinch unveiled “Beach Ballin’,” an anthemic collaboration with blackbear, which racked up nearly 3 million streams on Spotify alone in its two weeks of release. Featuring additional appearances from Pouya, Goody Grace, and pop-emo veterans Good Charlotte, Back 2 The Beach arrives via Beartrap / TWNSHP.
Tonight, Yung Pinch performs a sold-out album release concert at The Roxy in Los Angeles, where he will perform songs from the new project and highlights from his career.
