Artist Biography

The Beaches is a Canadian indie band that formed while the members were in high school. The band was originally called Done with Dolls and got signed by Disney who released their self-titled EP in 2009. This was before the group reached high school. When the members all started high school, they wanted a more mature sound and became the Beaches after a minor lineup change. The Beaches released their debut EP in 2013 followed by their second EP Heights the following year. Their debut album, produced by Metric’s Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw, titled Late Show came out in 2017. The single “T-Shirt” off the album topped the Canadian Rock charts for nine weeks and helped win Breakthrough Act of the Year at the 2018 Juno Awards. In the following year, the Beaches did a headline tour in Canada, North America, and the U.K. In 2022, they released the double EP compilation album Sisters Not Twins which won the Juno Award for Rock Album of the Year. The next year the band released their true second album Blame My Ex which features the viral TikTok track “Blame Brett.” The album reached number 76 on the Canadian Albums Chart.
