Surf Trash are a three-piece teenage surf rock band from Newcastle NSW, comprised of brothers Andy and Nick and best mate Lachlan Jackson. Influenced by bands such as Skegss, The Hives, Twin Peaks, and West Thebarton, Surf Trash focus on hard-hitting chords with driving pop melodies to bring the sound of summer to your speakers. Officially forming in late 2017, last year saw the release of their sophomore single ‘Summer’, which was featured on the triple j's Unearthed High Report Card as well as being added to rotation on triple j Unearthed Digital Radio + being played on triple j itself. Having only been playing live since April 2018, the year was great to the band with the boys supporting some of the countries most exciting names including The Delta Riggs, The Bennies, These New South Wales, Crocodylus, The Drunk Mums + many more. However, 2018 peaked when the lads were asked to accompany Ruby Fields as the main support on her biggest headline shows to date across her 'Dino Tour', of which were the biggest crowds the young trio have ever played too. Upon riding the nose of ‘Summer’s success, the band spent the last few months honing their craft through an incredible amount of live shows + jam sessions. Having hit the studio in July to record new material, 2019 is set to be even bigger for the trio.
We are an alternative rock band based out of Tampa, Fl, but currently in Nashville.
The anticipation builds as Australian rock outfit Surf Trash prepares to share a taste of their upcoming album, slated for release later this year. Their music resonates with the echoes of their road-tested authenticity, promising a sonic experience that captures the essence of their live performances. Get ready to dive into the waves of Surf Trash's evolving sound and witness the next chapter of their musical odyssey. With a nod to the 90s Australian rock scene that influenced them, including revered acts like The Celebrate Rifles and Radio Birdman, Surf Trash has honed their raw live sound – a signature feature renowned by their fans from their extensive road ventures. Following their monumental USA tour in November and a sold-out national Australian tour last year, complemented by notable festival appearances across the country, the band is thrilled to embark on a journey across North America this April for their latest single ‘Hello Again'.
