Dive into the sun-soaked melodies and complex harmonies that defined a generation with the upcoming documentary on The Beach Boys, America’s quintessential surf rock band whose music has become synonymous with the golden California lifestyle.

Emerging from Hawthorne, California, in the early 1960s, The Beach Boys – led by the visionary Brian Wilson along with his brothers Dennis and Carl, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine – crafted a sound that captured the bliss and beauty of the beachside.

Beyond their idyllic surf-themed hits like Surfin’ USA and California Girls, the group’s groundbreaking album Pet Sounds and the symphonic ambitions of Good Vibrations pushed the boundaries of pop music, influencing countless artists and reshaping the soundscape of the 20th century.

The upcoming documentary – aptly titled The Beach Boys – promises an intimate look at the triumphs and challenges of a band that not only provided the soundtrack to endless summers but also navigated the profound shifts in music and culture during their tumultuous career.
