Beta Rays

Beta Rays: the current line up

Beta Rays

Look out for those Beta Rays, you can't always see them coming. But North London's next big thing are currently on the air waves all over town...

Beta Rays formed on St. Valentine's Day 2007 and are thus coming up to two years of age. Aww.

They have an air of classic rock about them, citing influences among the likes of Led Zeppelin, R.E.M, Queen, The Police, Brian Wilson, The Beatles, and more modern icons including The Libertines, Muse and Blink-182.

That aside, this band can roll out a piano tear-jerker with the best of them. Check out their MySpace if you don't believe us!

Grin and bare it: Beta Rays in da studio

There you'll find our personal and London Calling favourite, I Saw It, I Dig It, I Want It, next to numbers such as final track You Should Have Run Away Too, both of which highlight the band's vocal harmonies.

In their two years together the boys are proud to have worked with Raj Manek who fronts the Manek talent agency, and have not looked back since. It led to a recording session at Abbey Road Studios to master the debut E.P, I Fell In Love, which is now on current download release.

Being frog-marched out of the building for playing Beatles covers in the hallowed Studio 2 (they had to break in to do so) was not such a golden moment. But none the less, how very rock 'n' roll. Beta Rays, we salute you!

Newly voted Best Band on ABC's Fame Games, they're looking forward to a glittering year ahead, fit to bursting with gigs and new material. For current dates, follow links to their MySpace in the right-hand column of this page.
