I’m as guilty as any other shocking blog/media sites that pulls out the token “OMG Tassie is so far away, amirite?” introduction when it comes to writing about bands from down that way. It’s lazy, unprofessional writing, and I always feel a bit shit when I do it. I guess it’s because I just don’t know the scene or bands well enough to express anything worthwhile in my articles.
However, that’s about to change, because I just got a top notch guide from Heart Beach, one of my favourite bands from last year. Their debut album from last year was brutally underrated – if I had my way, every single person in this godforsaken land would be required to own a copy and spin it at least three times a day. It’s such a magical album, full of blunt, beautiful musings on everyday life paired with splashes of guitar, a fantastic sequel to the likes of Beaches and Love of Diagrams.
Anyway, Heart Beach are coming to Sydney pretty soon to launch their new 7″, and I’m bloody excited. They’re gonna be fantastic, I just know it, especially if this list of top-notch locals they threw together is anything to go by. They’ll be playing The Record Crate in Glebe w/ Low Talk, Miners and Skyboxes. If you need any more details, you can find them here on Facebook, right after you check out this awesome guide to Tasmanian music.
