Bio

The need to escape the suffocation of a home city was the breath of fresh air that led Jack Williamson to Melbourne. There, he poured his emotions and shadows into bones of songs, ideas that were refined through outback Queensland, and throughout South-East Asia. On his return, with the addition of Matt and James Shehan, the musical project Beach Aunty was born.

“Energetic, effervescent and warm” – Decibel Dose; East Coast Acid Rain’ is the first release from the boys. The single represents the reasoning behind Jacks departure, a “fusion of raw lyrics, woozy surf melodies” – Hidden Herd. After receiving high rotation on Triple J unearthed, and with plenty of positive reviews from Triple J presenters the band supported Our Man in Berlin at their EP launch at Amplifier, as well as featuring in the 2015 Big Splash; coming runners up in their heat.

Debuting a new set at Jack Rabbit Slims supporting The Griswolds is on the immediate horizon, with the release of a new single imminent and an EP to drop later in 2015 – recorded with Dylan Olliverie at Wagon Studios.

Oh yep this is one easily digestible dose of sunny indie rock. Beach Aunty: part of a balanced diet.

You did my favourite thing where you put a LOT of variation into two minutes and then got the hell outta there. Going back in for another listen. <3

I like the scrappy fringes of this song. And Beach Aunty is also a perfect band name.
