Premiere: Seaside close out their year with Home Remedies

Premiere: Seaside close out their year with Home Remedies

As they approach the end of their Joyride national tour, Seaside end a triumphant year with one last taste.

It's fairly safe to say that 2019 has been a break-out year for Byron Bay's Seaside (the band, that is, but also shout out to Byron Bay's beaches too). Their sultry dream-pop has become a 2019 highlight, with the rising four-piece delivering nuggets of gold that time and time again, prove their consistent brilliance in an indie-pop setting. Whether it be their debut last year or the string of singles since - HabitsSycamore and August's Joyride - the band have constantly proved their place in the upper echelon, something becoming better recognised as they win triple j Unearthed competitions to play Splendour In The Grass and a whole lot more.

Their previous single Joyride really took it up a notch - shimmering guitar melodies that twist and turn into a darker, surf-rock punch when it's needed to - and it's something that's come to allow a certain unique distinction: there's no-one out there within the 'up and coming' bracket who do what Seaside are currently doing time, and time, and time again.

Premiering today as their national tour begins to wrap up (they've got a few shows left that'll take them to the year's end - you can find them all below), Home Remedies is the cherry on top of Seaside's break-out year, giving one final taste of their ongoing brilliance as they pave a 2020 bound by growth, evolution and experimentation. You can really hear that in Home Remedies - it doesn't veer too far away from their past work, but this heavier emphasis on surfy punk-rock is becoming more pronounced and experimented upon, and considering their ability to knock out whatever sound they attempt, we can't help but be excited about it.

"Home Remedies is about the somewhat more rational alter-ego in a girls mind, the side we sometimes seem to suppress when we're in love," says frontwoman Darcy Dexter on the single.

There's plenty more to come - more tour dates, more music and a whole lot more - but in the meantime, dive into Home Remedies below ahead of its greater release tomorrow, and catch their forthcoming tour dates underneath that:

Tour Dates: 

Friday 6th December - Indi Bar – Perth, WA
Saturday 7th December - Yalls Summer Fest – Yallingup, WA
Sunday 8th December – Mojo’s – Fremantle, WA
