Beach Week is an indie/surf/pop band from Washington DC. The group was started by sisters Kate and Jill Miller in the early months of 2010, with bassist Julian Vu joining that summer. Beach Week makes music that is energetic and fun, combining blissed-out reverb, vocal harmonies, killer basslines, and a dash of punk rock. Their self-released debut EP 'Teen Dreams & Beauty Queens' is out now!

"...the local trio of Kate Miller, her sister Jill and bassist Julian Vu like to pair obviously catchy riffs that could have been culled from Weezer, The Beach Boys or any number of '90s Brit-pop acts with a touch of reverb. Miller's lyrics are confessional and familiar but not overly simple. While it's easy to relate to a song like "Count the Hours" which references nuances and niches that we've all seen, these don't seem like lyrics that we could have all written. The upbeat tune belies the lyrical complexity. But just in case it's unclear what ambience they're trying to project: they use a bubble machine onstage."
Valerie Paschall, The DCist
