“Kate and Jill Miller are the two sisters who make up Beach Week, playing guitar/vox, and drums/harmonica...Full of energy, songs like "Kurt V" and "Beauty Queen" were laced with a vocal purposely over-emphasizing a hiccup, nasal pronunciation and girly sweetness, presumably meant to mock a valley girl....Satisfying chunky instrumentation branded the songs played from their EP "Teen Dreams & Beauty Queens" (what is it about being a girl that causes you to revisit themes like teenagerdom and beauty queens and catholic school girls? We can't get over it I guess). Miller (Kate) was charming, demanding a giggly "do over!" and introducing a song with the note that this "is for Chuck Brown, I suppose, because go-go's been a big influence on our band." Over steady drums by Miller (Jill), the heavy reverb and sugary sweet vocals gave a solid set.”
“D.C. natives Beach Week manage to make sun inspired pop music without sounding as if they heard their first Beach Boys record yesterday and started a band today. The Miller sisters don't get lost in their own haze. Fuzz is the springboard for strong vocals, not a distraction tool."”
"...there is a comfort that they establish over the course of a set that I have a good deal of respect for. I also like the subtle psyche-pop sound of the guitar."...."you may be surprised at how much you are pulled in. They are on my 'keep an eye on' list."
“To local high schoolers, beach week is that crazy time right after graduation where you head to Ocean City, cause a lot of ruckus, have tons of fun, and hope to return in one piece. Beach Week the band is kind of like that. Sisters Kate and Jill Miller play upbeat, energetic music that’s occasionally beachy—and always fun.”
"...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."
