A nomadic pop/punk logomaniac, Bec Sandridge has a guitar swagger reminiscent of Prince, and the delivery of new wave icons like David Byrne.
Recent single, ’I’ll Never Want A BF’ is Sandridge’s most unapologetic and meatiest work to date. Added to rotation on triple j, the track nods somewhat to the eighties, with Sandridge’s theatrical vocals spilling over the top of fuzzed out guitars, a gritty synth bass and hard hitting disco hi- hats. Produced by Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, The Drones) at Melbourne’s Soundpark studios and mixed by Sandridge’s previous collaborator Tony Buchen (The Preatures) in LA.
Late 2017 saw Sandridge tour Australia, UK and Europe in support of ‘I’ll Never Want A BF’. And so far 2018 has Sandridge touring non stop as she supports The Smith Street Band on an epic Australian tour, over 30 shows, visiting every state and territory.
Sandridge’s previous singles ‘In The Fog, In The Flame,’ ‘You’re A Fucking Joke’ and ‘High Tide’ all landed high rotation on triple j, 3RRR, FBi and community stations throughout Australia alongside international airplay in Europe.
2016 was a pivotal year for Bec – after winning the triple j Unearthed competition to play Yours and Owls Festival she signed to Wollongong label Farmer and the Owl to release her In The Fog EP. As well as play a myriad of shows supporting the likes of Montaigne and Cub Sport and nabbing festival slots at Festival Of The Sun, Fairgrounds and BIGSOUND.
At home on the stage, Sandridge has traversed the country in 2017 with tours alongside The Rubens, Highasakite, The Naked & Famous and Mitski. Also, appearances at Groovin The Moo, The Hills Are Alive, Big Pineapple Music Festival, Mountain Sounds Festival, The Plot and a welcome return to Yours & Owls Festival.
