Beachware are heading to Napier on Saturday the 15th of August to play a one-off show at Paisley Stage!
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, DIY project.
The ‘DIY project’ has, however, grown to b 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.
In 2020, single ‘The Arcade’ leads Beachware one-step closer to the significant milestone
that is the release of their debut full-length album. Working closely with Scotty Pearson (Elemeno P) and Tom Healy, the record continues the indie-driven, honest pop which resulted in the bands homegrown EP success. Maintaining a composed, slick live act, the band has transitioned to supporting acts like Billy Idol and Zed, as well as playlisting across Spotify, Apple curated lists.
