Bio

Beddy Rays have been making music together since they first met on the primary school oval back in the day, but the release of weekend anthem ‘Sobercoaster’ in 2020 really started shaking things up for these fun-loving larrikins. The cracker of a tune has amassed over 2 million streams on Spotify and echoed throughout backyards of Australia during triple j’s Hottest 100, receiving a spot at number 57 and truly cementing the four-piece as one of Australia’s most loveable groups. The boys backed it up with isolation anthem ‘Better Weather’ receiving high rotation and rave reviews among triple j folk, and followed with their last release ‘Wait A While’, an ode to picking yourself up and putting yourself first. The track quickly became a fan favourite reaching number 1 most-played on triple j in April 2021 proving their past wins weren’t just dumb luck.

These days it’s almost impossible not to recognise a Beddy Rays track, as their music has become a carefully curated recipe involving all the right ingredients: powerful lyrics, strong hooks, mosh-worthy riffs and a lingering sense of comradery and good vibes which remains prevalent in everything they create. The band’s latest belter ‘Week On Repeat’ follows the feeling of rolling into another working week while trying to break away from the plain and mundane. After winning the 2021 Levi’s Music Prize and coming off a sold-out east coast tour, these four young tradies are on their way to becoming the next big Australian export. With a growing loyal fanbase, tracks that leave you desperate for a summer festival and humble, down-to-earth personalities - everyone wants to be friends with Beddy Rays.

More like song on repeat. What a beauty. Beddy Rays make you feel like they're giving you the biggest warm hug, like they just get you and are right there with you along the way. There's a strong connection that's delivered tremendously well. Another kick ass release legends.

what really stood out to me here was the strength and style of Jacko's vocals! don't get me wrong, they're always impressive af but they sound especially hearty in that big, rumbling chorus.
