Six-piece Sydney collective Winston Surfshirt have spent the past six years establishing themselves as one of Australia’s, and the world’s, finest indie-R&B outfits. Building a dedicated fanbase off the back of two dreamy, lackadaisacal albums and a handful of unforgettable collaborations, they’re a group of unassuming cult heroes. Led by the eponymous Winston Surfshirt, the band channel a vintage kind of rockstardom, one led less by ego than by openness, earnestness, and a drive to share their music with the world. Combining a classic west coast hip-hop sound with the snap of psych-pop and sunny, uniquely Australian charm, the band are a testament to the power of the free-minded and the casually virtuosic.
