BeangrowersAmongst the broadening horizons of the European music scene you will find the Beangrowers. Hailing from the Mediterranean island of Malta, this female-fronted three-piece has become known for their unique style and infectious mixture of guitar-based pop and quirky keyboard sounds: think Blondie meets Joy Division. “Keeper of the angelic vocal chords” – front-woman/lead guitarist Alison Galea is up there alongside PJ and Nina Persson. and supported by band-mates Mark Sansone (bass, synths) and Ian Schranz (drums, synths).

The Beangrowers music has always been defined as pop-rock that’s short, sharp and to the fuzz-guitar driven point. While that can still be heard on their new self-produced album “Not In A Million Lovers” (Minty Fresh), there’s also a noticeably more mature element to their latest release, both lyrically and musically.

The accompanied image to the posting is a quick snapshot I took in Austin earlier in 2008 where they played to a nice sized enthusiastic crowd at the Habana Annex.   Quaint Affair was one of many in their SXSW endorsed set.
