Bio

The indie surf-pop 4-piece have plenty to smile about, fresh off the steam train of 2018; touring throughout regional Australia with The Rubens and Tia Gostelow, as well as making waves in New Zealand on their ‘Bridge the Ditch’ tour. Amassing 20 million streams across all platforms internationally and constantly growing their shaggy family of fans - 2019 hasn’t dimmed the spotlight either.

Since the release of their debut full length album Barefoot (2017), Shag Rock have toured the USA and embarked on multiple headline tours across sunny Australia, clocking up the miles in the band van. Following this success, they have released two singles ‘Double Life’ and ‘Fuzzy Connection’ (2018) which have evolved into full-blown party anthems. 2019 has seen the release of 'Old School Lover' before they embarked on a nation-wide tour in celebration of the single. Finally, to cap off the year sees the release of 'Somewhere in the Middle' - a delicate return to their roots and crafted for a lazy sunday afternoon.

Whether these cheeky numbers are sung in sold out Melbourne shows, or steamy pre-work showers across the world; there is always a time for some Shag.

Yeah, the songwriting is clever. It wraps right around you, keeping you tight and snug. Keen to hear more.
