Event Description

Hobart, Australia indie-pop trio Heart Beach are excited to release their sophomore album 'Kiss Your Face' and have announced two shows in Victoria BC - 14 January 2017 at Wheelies.

The band's new music has received praise and features from Rolling Stone, The Music, Noisey, AU Review, STACK Magazine, Ripe Music, Tone Deaf, Who The Hell, Happy Mag, Fasterlouder and The Wandering Lamb, just to name a few.


“Like The Smiths, like Joy Division, this music is oddly and often wonderfully uplifting. Almost every song starts with a drawn-out chord poignant enough to break Rupert Murdoch’s stony heart. It takes a brave, thoughtful band to sound this vulnerable. Heart Beach are beautiful, beautiful, melancholy babies. Treasure them.” - The Guardian ★★★★

"There's something very satisfying about a band that limits itself to a simple aesthetic and builds a world with what they have." - Rolling Stone

"The Hobart band are keen observers of the tides, harnessing their power to create affecting and effective guitar pop. Listen carefully and you can hear sonar blasts from the past, the plaintive melodies and moods of '80s post punk and scuzzy '90s garage new wave reach the surface, but Heart Beach follow their own currents into new oceans of feeling." - STACK Magazine

"Bringing together the best elements of contemporary Australian music - laconic guy/girl harmonies, jangling guitar and bass lines and just the right amount of fuzz." The Music

“You know that feeling you get floating in the ocean? Weightless, worry-less drifting? If you could combine that with the sting of hot sand between your toes, it would feel a lot like Heart Beach. Their music is chill enough to take you to a place of pure calm, but edgy enough to tingle your ears into an all-sense inclusive frenzy.” - Happy

"Tassie trio Heart Beach have really come out strong off the back of their debut self-titled album." - AU Review

"Heart Beach brings out the droning guitar, simple drum beats and fuzzy leads that is undeniably charming, melancholic and just god damn perfect." - The Wandering Lamb

Self-described as “an ocean-pop band that plays sad, minimal, Hobartian, skuzz pop”; Heart Beach dazzled critics in 2015 with the release of their self-titled debut, following a feature on triple j's Unearthed and a position in Rolling Stone’s Top 10 Australian Albums Of The Year.

Band members Claire McCarthy (bass/vocals), Jonathon McCarthy (guitar/vocals) and Christopher Wessing (drums/guitar) interweaving girl-boy harmonies, insistent guitars and steady rhythms create uniquely crisp yet subtle sounds of simplicity and grandeur. Attracting comparisons to old-school greats such as The Pixies, Echo and The Bunnymen and Joy Division; the Tasmanian indie-pop trio’s musicianship is of the highest calibre.
