Beachwood ('Marbles' Single Launch)
Special Guests TBA
TICKETS $10+BF ONLINE
BEACHWOOD are the new kids on the block - the Melbourne-based electropop duo of multi-platinum producer/writer Jarrad Rogers (Charli XCX, Lana del Rey, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Icona Pop) and indie filmmaker/songwriter Angeline Armstrong.
In 2016, Angeline, fresh to the buzz of Los Angeles, found herself at Jarrad’s Christmas party. Over lamingtons and pav, they were surprised to learn that they’d both grown up in the Western suburbs of Melbourne and had also, coincidentally, both chosen the Beachwood neighborhood in LA as their first port of call. Starting to write together in Jarrad’s backyard studio, Angeline’s folk-heavy songwriting style collided with his progressive electronic beats - and two years later, in 2018, electropop outfit BEACHWOOD was officially formed.
Having since returned to the homeland, Australia, the newcomers have rapidly found favour in both local and international markets. Their debut track, ‘Miracle’, attracted critical acclaim including several awards for their boldly artistic debut music video, winning out over Aussie legends The Veronicas, Guy Sebastian & Pekking Duck at the 2019 Clipped Music Video Awards. Their second single, ‘Love Me Or Leave Me Alone’, found its way onto over 30 international New Music Friday playlists andis nearing on 1 million streams. ‘Marbles’, the duo’s third single, features the eclectic MC Tray Haggerty from Texas, cementing the duo’s trajectory of making waves across the globe.
Come November 7 @ the Gasometer, this electro-pop duo will be filling the room with smart, playful pop that has something to say. Although it’s electronic music, there’s an organic warmth and familiarity that underpins BEACHWOOD’s sound. Angeline’s background as a writer, folk artist and filmmaker influences the nuanced imagery and character-driven feeling of her lyric writing. While Jarrad’s ultramodern production and melodies cut through to forge a melding of the cinematic and those future-fresh pop sounds that just make you want todance.
