Beach Riot were born when guitarist/vocalist Cami Menditeguy made the decision to up-sticks and move halfway across the world to East London from her home country of Argentina at just 18. Desperate to front her own band, living on a remote horse farm alone was no longer an option; so, to raise funds for the move, Cami made her flight money by gambling on horse races. Meeting fellow guitarist/vocalist Rory O’Connor at a show in East London—and finding a shared love for ice-cream, weird guitars, PJ Harvey, Mudhoney, 4am mozzarella sticks, dark comedy, dungeons and dragons, and Brighton beach hangover fry-ups—at last Beach Riot were born, and the gamble had paid off.
