Bio

Boatfriends are an ex-Newcastle, now predominantly Melbourne based outfit. Founding members Clinton Edwards and Shanna Watson have already shared the stage with Neon Indian, Chet Faker, An Horse and Collarbones and recently added drummer Sam Peterson to their ranks. With the upcoming release of their debut EP, they will be Performing at All Hallow's Eve at the Regal Ballroom, Northcote and supporting local acts White Caves at The Gasometer on the 3/11 and Biscotti at The Evelyn on the 11/11. Their recently released single 'Hands Up To The Light' and closing track "Sport Billy" have been lauded by music blogs 'the Ripe', 'Indie Shuffle' and 'Who The Hell' and given high praise by JJJ. A clear indication this dream-wave trio is definitely a band to watch. http://www.theripe.tv/boatfriends-sport-billy/ http://whothehell.net/archives/21735?utm_source=feedly http://www.indieshuffle.com/boatfriends-hands-light/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTyrDGg-fCk

Well this is just beautiful, you guys. Loaded with dreamy textures, authentically vintage production and some hazy vocals that hang in the air all gorgeous-like. Basically, Sofia Coppola needs this for her next movie.
