Heart Beach (Hobart, Australia) play sad, girl-guy, 9to5 pop songs. In 2016 the band signed to legendary Australian label Spunk! (Arcade Fire, Akron/Family, Animal Collective, Antony and the Johnsons, Belle and Sebastian, Broken Social Scene, Explosions in the Sky, the Libertines, Sufjan Stevens, Sleater Kinney, Mac Demarco, the Yeah Yeah Yeah's).
“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)
“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 ★★★★)
