Bio

Hobsons Bay Coast Guard a freakout variety surf band from Melbourne. Set out to melt faces off and then heal the wounds with a rush of ocean water. What began as the side project from members of Portal Bat, Money for Rope, Splendidid and Sun Bazel, Hobsons was never meant to be anything more than a cheap DIY passion project, but the surf monster has grown way bigger than anyone anticipated. Catchy sun-drenched hooks, warped chords and trashy skitzo drums all smashed together on a coastal themed paint-your-own-adventure colouring book. A clever band from dumb people and or dumb band for clever people.

Feels like I just walked into a vinnies and found an expired box of fireworks. You know it's gonna be full of surprises when you let it off, some brilliant colours, some strange hisses and fizzes.
