Bodies On The Beach began as solitary exploration for Navid Eliot. With the addition of two Seattle music scene mainstays (Evan Gackstatter and Andrew Ginn), the home recordings of Eliot began to make the shift from art project to art-centric rock n roll.
As in his work in the nationally-celebrated Planes On Paper, Eliot’s fingerpicking remains the simple, skeletal foundation of Bodies On The Beach, though now amidst swirls of tape delay and reverb. “Like other self-aware tunesmiths, Eliot knows that good tremolo guitar and song chops go a long way.” - Ari Rosenschein
Their first EP, “Ghost,” released December 4th, and currently enjoys rotation on the Northwest’s finest radio stations.
