Bio

Surf Trash are a 3 piece surf rock band from Newcastle, comprised of 19 and 16-year-old Scott brothers Andy and Nick and their best mate 16-year-old Lachlan Jackson.

Influenced by the new breed of contemporary surf rock enthusiasts like Skegss, Wavves and Hockey Dad, Surf Trash focus on hard-hitting chords with driving pop melodies to bring the sound of summer to your speakers.

The band jumped straight into the deep end with their first single ‘So Long’ being released in the tail end of 2017. 2018 saw the release of sophomore single ‘Summer’, which got featured on the Unearthed High Report Card, added to rotation on Unearthed Digital Radio and played on triple j itself.

Upon riding the nose of ‘Summer’s success, the band have spent the last few months honing their craft through intoxicating amounts of live shows and jam sessions, hitting the studio in July with their debut EP in the pipeline, slated for an October release date and tour to follow.

Having already supported acts like The Bennies, The Delta Riggs, These New South Wales Drunk Mums and The Sea Gypsies Surf Trash’s live show shows no signs of wiping out.

Surf Trash aims to have you dancing the night away after a long day on the waves and lock into the spirit of an endless summer all year round.

The trio are back kicking sand, enjoying the local swell and making sure everyone's having the time of their life. This one's a punch of fun.

you're out of the swell and in playing at a raucous house party where people are chanting along with you.
