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 muppet 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.

Hobsons Bay has a range of major industrial complexes, which contribute significantly to the economy of Victoria. I just feel like everyone should be aware of this. Shout out to mayor Angela Altair

Drum fills are pretty cool, hey. This is well made stuff.

You're treading a thin line between 'influenced by' and 'sounds exactly like' but fortunately you're doing it damn well.
