‘DNA’ is a futuristic, dystopian song about people and technology. The song and especially the video are also inspired by dance, body language and movement. ‘DNA’ is a far cry from the first days of Beverly Girl, when demos were recorded with a £25 mic in a tiny apartment. With the help of a single envelope and a CD-R the band managed to attain extensive national coverage and put themselves on the map.
Since their conception the band has been carving out a new genre in which to align themselves with. Beverly Girl were one of the first bands in their area to combine conventional funk elements with dance and house music which sets them apart from the pack. Beverly Girl is not a regular band with a regular set up. How many bands do you know intersperse drum machines with live guitar and keyboards, live choreography and dance moves?

Beverly Girl frequently invite dancers on stage with them and have DJ’d at dance parties often. With a rich blend of both musical and visual art, Beverly Girl are onto a winning formula
‘ DNA’ is set to drop on November 13th.
