From Sydney’s northern beaches, carving their way into the Australian music scene, Winston Surfshirt are One of country’s most interesting bands. The six-piece was originally a solo project of singer/producer/rapper Winston Surfshirt and gradually evolved into a musical collective, adopting artists and producers from across the country – a factor largely responsible for their unmistakable sound. Their unique blend of soul and hip-hop is the auditory equivalent of A Tribe Called Quest splitting spliffs with your parent’s favourite band.
Over the past few years, Winston Surfshirt have become vital members of Sydney’s underground live scene, with past performances ranging from sold out headline shows to festival appearances, warehouse gigs and block parties. In 2016 we saw Winston team up with label buddies Polographia providing the buttery vocals for their triple j and Majestic Casual approved track “Sly”.
Their latest offering ‘Be About You’ blends artful hip-hop with dream-pop guitar and silky vocals, warranting the support of global premieres from triple j and Clash Magazine from the get go.
