The Beaches are an all woman Indie rock band based in Toronto. These young women are fierce! Alanis Morrisette referred to them as having “a 90s sound”, and thus being one of the reasons why she chose this band to open for her.
The Beaches have a particular classic punk rock with hints of pop sound. I suspect that some of their influences are 90’s punk rock bands with strong female leads, like Hole, Garbage and Veruca Salt to name a few. Their songs are light and fluffy, somewhat sentimental and up-lifting. They are refreshing and easy to listen to.
The band has been active since 2011 starting out as teenagers, to becoming proud winners of a Juno award for Breakthrough Group of the Year, in 2018.
They have a fabulous website which is interactive and fun to visit. I totally recommend you try the game “Snake Tongue,” which is inspired no doubt from their song with the same name.
Tara Slone also interviewed the band after their set and Jordan Miller and Leandra Earl talked about how this gig was the first full band roof top show experience they have had.
They were asked about how they have been spending their time during the pandemic, they focused mostly on taking time to reconnect with family, keeping busy and not necessarily playing music, but rather, taking advantage to engage in other activities and reflect on matters of the moment. The are optimistic and exited about their latest release, The Professional.
