Lost Beach make indie-rock that’s equal parts barroom swagger, sea breeze and celestial wonder. The band — Jonny Perdue, Steve Stout, Zacc West and Davey Latter — released their debut EP, “Nightbreak,” a year ago, then dazzled everybody on the Westside (at least, in the video) with the single “Classless Man.” The new single “Close Call,” out Friday, introduces the band’s full-length, “Marrakesh Gold,” arriving soon. It’s a woozy rocker that scratches a nostalgic itch. Like the rest of self-produced album, it was recorded live in the band’s L.A. studio. “The idea of playing without a click gave the songs a specific DNA and emotion that we didn’t feel we could achieve playing to a click,” Perdue explains. “Due to this choice, every song has its own life.”
