Stephen Sanchez Delivers Beach Boys Inspired Classic Pop on ‘Baby Blue Bathing Suit’

Stephen Sanchez recently celebrated the rerelease of his Angel Face album, but now turns attention to a brand new track – one that features in the soundtrack of Disney+ documentary The Beach Boys. Of course, Stephen draws influence from the classic US band, with the singer-songwriter co-writing with Dan Nigro and Amy Allen.

Stephen Sanchez says: “I was floored when The Beach Boys’ team reached out to me about being featured on the film’s soundtrack – it’s truly an honor to be a part of this project and I have so much respect for the band and their musical legacy.  Endless Summer was one of the first vinyls my Grandpa gave me as a kid.  Recording the song was equally incredible – I got to work with Dan Nigro and Amy Allen to write the track, and I recorded the vocals when I was in London at the iconic Abbey Road Studios. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”

Co-writer Dan Nigro Says: “I would not be the songwriter I am today if it weren’t for The Beach Boys. Being asked to write this song for the documentary is honestly a dream come true.” Amy Allen says: “The Beach Boys inspired me from the first time my dad put on the Pet Sounds CD in the car when I was 8 years old, and still inspire me today as I continue to learn from their chord progressions, intricate harmonies, and their timeless songwriting in general. The impact The Beach Boys have had on pop music is truly remarkable and unparalleled and I feel very beyond grateful to have made this song in their honor with Dan and Stephen.”

The track perfectly blends Sanchez’s contemporary retro aesthetics with the classic Beach Boys surfer pop sound to create a stunning and particularly fun tribute track.
