Beachware signs with Songbroker

Songbroker is pleased to welcome Beachware to the fold.

Beachware are a shimmering new 4-piece alt-pop outfit from the Auckland coast.

When their ‘Rip City’ demo racked up 3000 plays online in just two days, the band snuck into the studio to re-record the single alongside 4 more tracks. Engineered and mixed by Shannon Fowler, the pop legend behind Tom Lark and AC Freazy, and with mastering by Djeisan Suskov (LEISURE, countless others), the five track ep is 25 minutes of fun, frenzy, soaring melodies and danceable tunes that’ll stick in your brain.

Beachware’s second single, ‘Want Somebody’, was quickly featured on Spotify’s Discover Weekly, and has been licensed for major advertisements for Burger Fuel and NZ health.

This group is a melange of musical elements, from ex-hardcore bassist Phoenix Guava (Quinn the Human), hook vocals and slick rhythm from RJ Hartnell (The Rickshaws, High Horses), Alexandra Hanna on keys and BV’s (Nuo, Lessons), and James McDonald on lead guitar and production.
