Beggars in a New Land began as Eric Brody and Harry Cubberly’s high school recording project. Though the two have since been separated by the burdensome demands of higher education, they continue recording at their respective institutions and play together whenever they can.
“Fresh from the foothills of New Jersey blisters the vibrant electricities of Beggars In A New Land, the duo of Eric Brody and Harry Cubberly. Get Off The Coast‘s label Crash Symbols first turned me onto them with their insane Dope Mountain Fuck comp, and now they further my enjoyment by releasing Beggars In A New Land’s EP Teething. Its weathered electronic cloudy chilled pop at its finest.”
—Laurent Hrybyk, Pasta Primavera
“Teething is Crash Symbol’s third release to date, and they’ve started out almost outrageously strong. Beggars aren’t afraid to classify themselves as chillwave, and neither will I. Compared to their peers though, Beggars sounds outright enormous. Chillwave’s dance influences are pulled right up front on Teeth and their kitschy synths and drum machines somehow manage to sound like they’d fill arenas.”
