Toronto-based band The Beaches are glam rock and garage. They are undeniably warm and unquestionably cool. They are the girls next door and they are the life of the party. However you break it down, The Beaches are 100% rock and roll.
Comprised of sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller (on lead vocals/bass and guitar, respectively), Eliza Enman-McDaniel on drums, and Leandra Earl on keys and guitar, the band has a natural kismet that shines through on each of their tracks and in their live performance. Their songs flow with unparalleled ease, headbangers with resonance.
Although the girls are all in their early 20s, they’ve been writing and performing together as a band for more than a decade. However, the last year has seen the band release their major label debut, tour the U.S. for the first time, headline a Canadian tour, win a London Music Award and take home the coveted 2018 Juno Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year.
The Beaches are gearing up for a special guest spot on Alternative radio darlings Passion Pit’s U.S. tour, which runs from April 30th in Tempe, Arizona, and wraps May 25th in Washington D.C. and includes two high profile shows at the recently opened Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport in New York on May 19 & 21.
The band’s first three singles have all landed in the top 5 at Alternative radio in Canada. “Money,” the first track from The Beaches’ debut album Late Show peaked at No. 2, while “T-Shirt” jumped to No. 1 and stayed locked in the top spot for an outstanding nine weeks and is still currently top 20 on the recurrent chart a year after its release. Current single “Fascination,” off their still-untitled follow-up album, sits comfortably in the top 10.
After two self-released EPs, The Beaches unveiled their debut album Late Show in October 2017. Late Show consists of 12 tracks and was recorded in Toronto and produced by Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of five-time Juno Award-winners Metric, and mixed by multi-Grammy Award-winner Tchad Blake (Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, U2).
The Beaches have toured the UK, performed at Canadian festivals including Festival d'été de Québec, Osheaga and WayHome, and opened for such acts as Eagles of Death Metal, Alvvays and several other acclaimed artists. The Beaches were also personally selected by Death From Above to accompany them on their 27-date North American tour in fall 2017.
