Surf Trash are a three-piece teenage surf rock band from Newcastle NSW, comprised of brothers Andy and Nick and best mate Lachlan Jackson.
Influenced by bands such as The Hives, Twin Peaks, and West Thebarton, Surf Trash focus on hard-hitting chords with driving pop melodies to bring the sound of summer to your speakers.
Officially forming in late 2017, 2018 saw the release of their sophomore single ‘Summer’, which was featured on the triple j’s Unearthed High Report Card as well as being added to rotation on triple j Unearthed Digital Radio + being played on triple j itself.
Having only been playing live since April 2018, the year has been great to the band thus far with the boys supporting bands including The Delta Riggs, The Bennies, These New South Wales, Crocodylus, The Drunk Mums + many more. However, 2018 peaked when the lads were asked to accompany Ruby Fields as the main support on her biggest headline shows to date across her ‘Dino Tour’, of which were the biggest crowds the young trio have ever played too.
Upon riding the nose of the success of ‘Summer’, the band spent 2018 honing their craft through an incredible amount of live shows + jam sessions. Having hit the studio in July to record new material, 2019 is set to be even bigger for the trio.
