Imagine The Beach Boys with Scottish accents, added indie fuzz and synthesizers. This is Be Like Pablo.
Hailing from Scotland’s Moray Coast, the powerpop act make hook-laden music with four-part harmonies, noisy guitars and a dose of retro imagery. Having released their debut album The New Adventures in 2014, Be Like Pablo returned in summer 2017 with the single There She Is which received praise from Drowned In Sound, the NME and Scotland on Sunday.
The band has received airplay from Dermot O’Leary and Steve Lamacq and 2018 release My Kind of Girl was BBC Radio Scotland’s 'Single of the Week'.
The next Be Like Pablo single Call You Back will be released in April 2019.

“The band mine an inexhaustible seam of poptastic harmonies, underpinned by new wave guitars and a melodious keyboard sound which provides the icing on the cake." The Scotsman
