IndieBeat prides itself with constantly introducing fans to their next favorite artist. That is why we are now passionate about building music-centric ENCOUNTERs. Combining storytelling & soundtracking, ENCOUNTER is a Musical-Memory-Mixtape, curated by music-minded people to tell a story about their creative process and experiences. Each edition of ENCOUNTER we ask our guest artist to curate an Obsession Mixtape of their own, themed around the IndieBeat standard question "what are your fondest musical memories?" What better way to become closer to artists than to hear the music they experience. We now introduce you to an ENCOUNTER with Light Beam Rider:

Consisting of songstress Shauna Tohill and beat-maker Collette Williams, together they are creating a genuine buzz following the release of their debut single 'Can You Feel It' in late 2015. Shauna is responsible for one of the most recognisable Irish syncs of the last few years with the track 'Can't Keep Up', which she wrote and performed with her previous band Silhouette, used by Discover NI in an extensive TV advertising campaign. Shauna has spent the last couple of years touring as guest vocalist with Snow Patrol and as bassist with American indie artist Darwin Deez. Collette is also a hugely talented vocalist and musician and can be seen drumming in the video for Gabrielle Aplin's current hit single 'Sweet Nothing'.
On their latest single Death Yawn, the duo brings an epic drive with a sound aesthetic reminiscent of a what a MS MR and Courtney Barnett collaboration would sound like. With ferocity and allure acting as an addicting underlayer, this track is the energetic rock anthem you need. REWS shares enticing dance rock full of pop-punk flare and a production recipe for a perfect alternative hit. All in all, REWS rules and will make naysayers rue.
We recently talked with Shauna and Collette about their take on alternative culture. Read on to find out more about your next favorite artist.
