Beachware, Goodspace and Short Rib take the stage in the Galatos Basement to bring you a lush evening of indie vibes and boppin’ grooves
BEACHWARE - comprising of Rob Hartnell, Alexandra Selkirk-Hanna, Phoenix Guava, Julia Morris and James McDonald – have been making waves on the Auckland scene since mid 2017. They started as a group of friends who wanted to be part of a relaxed, weekend DIY project, before finding a slice of alt-indie-pop, perfectly balancing fast and energetic guitar, with three-part vocals, double-time keys, with modern writing but retro synthesizers.
The ‘just-for-fun team’ has, however, grown to be so much more than that, earning a reputation as a tight, energetic live act, which has turned out a handful of cracking singles, including ‘Want Somebody’ and ‘Respite’, as well as their debut EP TWIN COAST DISC DRIVE and RNZ’s winning 2019 Christmas song ‘Take Away The Tree’.
GOODSPACE are a 3-piece making music from their goodspace to take you to yours. You might say their sound sits somewhere between and beyond artists like Damon Albarn (Gorillaz), Massive Attack, Radiohead, TV on the Radio and Tune-Yards.
Lo-fi, indie, hints of hip-hop and songwriter sensibilities.
