LA based rock group Lido Beach have recently premiered their video for the song “So Glad” on www.purevolume.com. The video (directed by Brian Weber) features performance footage of the band, along with a heartbroken cross-dressing lead singer, Scott Waldman. “‘So Glad’ is Lido Beach’s official break-up song,” says Waldman, “We’ve all been in difficult relationships, but we all haven’t worn their clothes. This video affords me the opportunity to do so.” “So Glad” is featured on the band’s new EP Social Climbing, which is available on iTunes now.
Fronted by Long Island native, Scott Waldman, the musically and geographically diverse LA quartet combines a high-energy stage show with a blend of catchy, melodic rock, rooted deeply from the 90s alternative scene. They are regulars at The Roxy on the Sunset Strip and have performed all throughout LA.
In 2009, Lido Beach completed a successful string of coast-to-coast shows, (including headliners at The Knitting Factory Brooklyn and The Roxy, and opening for bands such as American Hi-FI, The Cab, and Steel Train) where they used unique guerrilla promotional tactics to promote themselves and their debut album “Fake Hellos, Real Goodbyes” to sell over 3,000 copies.
2012 found Lido Beach with new life. They hit the studio hard, with the end result being a much enhanced sound and some of their best songs yet. Their performance at the Andaz Hotel grabbed the attention of the Los Angeles Times, which referenced them in an article regarding the Sunset Strip’s re-emerging rock scene.
Lido Beach is Scott Waldman, Brandon Sanborn, Gaku Murata, and Abe Gearig.
