    It's not easy to do folk-influenced music in 2014. There are so many artists getting "organic" that it's nearly impossible to stand out. Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers opened up the floodgates to a deluge of imitators who just can't get it right despite of the cute girl backups and banjo fading in and out. However, UK duo Beech do it right. Not only do they do it right, but they do it better than the competition because their arsenal proves much wider.

    Josh Beech and Oliver Som elegantly stitch acoustic guitars and airy modern production together for a warm and wonderful emotional pastiche on "Lovers". With its unshakable chorus and impeccable instrumentation, it becomes instantly hummable. Moreover, it shows Beech to be worthy of your love. Meet the UK's most hypnotic and harmonious new export.

    Watch the video for "Lovers" below!
