Beaches


Beaches_LP_PinkMID

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, the five women of Beaches have graced the Australian music scene and beyond with their epic, sprawling psych-rock sound for more than five years.

Since forming in 2007, Beaches have toured extensively around Australia and the US, garnering an avid following for their trancelike, sonic overdrive live shows and glowing critical acclaim for their recordings.

Since returning from their second jaunt to the USA in 2011 (surrounding a performance at the 4th annual Austin Psych Fest, where they shared the stage with the likes of Roky Erickson, Spectrum, Crystal Stilts & the Fresh and Onlys), Beaches have once again joined forces with Jack Farley of Transient Studios to work on their second album She Beats.

Their 2008 debut was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize, and has been included in the book 100 Best Australian Albums by John O’Donnell, Toby Creswell and Craig Mathieson. The album reflected a shared musical love for 60s pop to 70s psychedelia, shoe-gaze to prog, southern boogie to krautrock. Yet Beaches transcend their influences to create something wholly new.

Beaches have performed at All Tomorrows Parties (by invitation of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds), SXSW (Austin, TX), Psych Fest (Austin TX), Big Day Out, Melbourne International Arts Festival, Dig it Up, Laneway, Cherry Rock and Meredith Music Festivals, and have supported the likes of Wooden Shjips, Best Coast, Deerhunter, Thee Oh Sees, Lightning Bolt, Mogwai, Sun Araw and Rose Tattoo.

Beaches are Antonia Sellbach on guitar and vocals, Alison Bolger on guitar and vocals, Ali McCann on guitar and vocals, Gill Tucker on bass and vocals and Karla Way on drums and vocals.
