The Beths formed just a few years ago in Auckland, New Zealand, when all four members were studying jazz together at the University of Auckland, and already have connected with an international audience. The band is led by guitarist and songwriter Elizabeth Stokes, and they combine the sunshine harmonies of '60s pop with the jagged riffs of '90s alt rock to create pop music with teeth, tailor-made for dancing and singing along at summer festivals.

The Beths tore through songs from their debut full length Future Me Hates Me. The New Zealand indie rock band filled the garden with buzzing guitars and three-part vocal harmonies.
