SEASIDE – Golden Girl
Recorded March 2018
Mixed by Matt Redlich (Holy Holy, Ball Park Music)
Mastered by Rob Grant (Tame Impala, Melody’s Echo Chamber)
Emerging from the sparkling waters of beautiful Byron Bay, Seaside are a four-piece indie band with a sultry dream-pop sound. The bands hypnotising live show has captivated audiences all over the country and seen them share the stage with the likes of Killing Heidi, The Jungle Giants, Alex Lahey, The Belligerents.
Currently preparing to release their upcoming single, “Golden Girl” mixed by Matt Redlich (Holy Holy, Ball Park Music, The Cairos), and mastered by Rob Grant (Tame Impala, Melody’s Echo Chamber, Pond) showcases a sleek, catchy new sound for the band.
Seaside was formed in 2016 by friends Darcy Dexter (vocals), Chris Mellross (drums), Tom Ketelaars (bass) and Brady Hudgson (guitar). They have since released two E.Ps and several singles that display their diverse indie sound.
Seaside first hit the studio with the recording of their debut E.P, “Wavy Baby”, produced by Mitta Norath and released in early 2017. It featured the singles “Down To The Water” and “Sucked In To You”, both garnering airplay on national radio station Triple J.
Their second E.P “Lover, We All Have Our Vices” (released early 2018) was recorded by Jordan Power of Inky Studios (Angus and Julia Stone, The Temper Trap, Xavier Rudd) and includes the single “Drifting”, a “gentle journey that maintains integrity with a soft rather saccharine vocal melody” (iohyou.com). The release of the single was accompanied by a Mighty Boosh-inspired clip filmed and directed by Nick Pollett, shot on the beautiful back beaches of Byron Bay.
The second single from “Lover We All Have Our Vices”, “Lilac Grey”, was produced by Jordan Power (Inky Studios) and showcases Seaside’s washed, dream-pop sound, alongside the intricate melodies of front woman Darcy Dexter. The accompanying film-clip was filmed and directed by Robert Sherwood (Sherwood Studios) in the Byron hinterland.
