Beach Weather catch a vibe somewhere between the most disparate of extremes. They write hooks universal enough for even the biggest arena full of people, yet introspective enough for even the most introverted wallflower to ponder. Their breezy guitars and sun-soaked choruses barely veil an honest exploration of emotional tumult, anxiety, and loneliness. Musically, the group – Nick Santino [vocals, guitar], Reeve Powers [bass], and Sean Silverman [production] – teeter on an axis of nostalgic melodies and future-facing provocation. With over 100 million-plus streams, they frame this distinct vision perfectly on their 2023 full-length debut, Pineapple Sunrise [Arista Records].

For as inimitable as the sound may be, Nick sums it up with a rather perfect analogy…

“I compare our band to a blacklight poster,” he offers. “You have to turn off the light and sit in full darkness to let the colors shine and see the bright side. We’re called ‘Beach Weather,’ but we have a darker tint to our music. Even though we sound very bright and happy, the lyrics go deeper.”

The Beaches

The Beaches are doing everything their way. After more than a decade together as a band, sisters Jordan Miller (lead vocals, bass) and Kylie Miller (guitar) plus closest friends LeandraEarl (guitar and keys) and Eliza Enman-McDaniel (drums) are entering a new era. On newalbum Blame My Ex, the 2x Juno Award-winning Toronto band channels heartbreak into self discovery through 10 exuberant songs that revel in pain and redemption. Lead single“Blame Brett,” an acerbic pop-rock knockout Jordan calls “a song for all the hot messes out there,” has racked up more than 15 million streams on Spotify and more than 10 million views on TikTok. The track peaked at #2 on Spotify’s US Viral chart, which was just the latest accomplishment for the group. They’ve had 8 #1 Singles on Canadian Alternative Radio,including “Blame Brett.”They sold out the majority of their shows across their upcoming Blame My Ex tour, including Toronto’s Massey Hall x2 and Vancouver’s Orpheum. Their single “T Shirt” is certified Gold in Canada, and they’ve garnered a number of hat-tips and cosigns from their peers. They’ve opened for Avril Lavigne, The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Alanis Morissette, The Aces, Passion Pit, and Eagles of Death Metal. Elton John is an avowed fan. And now, finally The Beaches are now free to make music that feels true to themselves. Their unyielding bond and shared journey make The Beaches a musical force to be reckoned with and a testament to thepower of sisterhood and friendship. How could you not be obsessed?
