Following on from their breakout single “Be About You” and follow up “Ali D”, latest single “Same Same” arrives with the news of their highly anticipated debut album titled Sponge Cake, set for release on Friday September 29. To celebrate, the boys will embark on a national headline tour (their second of the year), hitting all major cities, with support from frequent collaborators Polographia and local legend Crooked Letter. Kicking off in at Sydney’s Metro Theatre on November 10 and ending at Adelaide’s Fat Controller on Saturday December 2 – if it’s anything like their sold out debut tour, you’ll want to get a ticket fast.

Hailing from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Winston Surfshirt have developed a cult following with their smooth style and raucous live shows. The band are set to continue their golden run of form having already garnered support from the likes of Elton John (on his Beats 1 show), Zane Lowe (who branded them as one of his breaking acts of 2017) and BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens. Locally, triple j have shown their full support with both “Be About You” and “Ali D” added to full rotation upon release. The band showed their appreciation last week as they hosted triple j’s Like A Version, bringing it home with their killer rendition of 50 Cent & Nate Dogg’s classic “21 Questions”. Watch it here.

Their recent performance at Splendour In The Grass was nothing short of spectacular and a clear standout of the weekend. While they may have opened the Mix Up Stage, their crowd was reflective of a headliner, with adoring fans filling up the tent to see a blaring performance from the band, setting the festival standard for the artists that followed.
