Brisbane’s Concrete Surfers deliver huge walls of fuzz and bass with forward thinking lyrics and an anti-establishment flair.
Brothers Jovi & Jamie Brook (vocals, guitar and drums respectively) paired up with mates Sean Foster (lead guitar) and Trent Courtenay (bass) in high school for what has become a fast-moving trajectory for the group of four kids from the South East Queensland suburbs.
After selling out hometown shows, releasing their sophomore EP ‘My Life On Repeat’ and having already supported heavyweights like Royal Blood (UK), The Cribs (UK), The Jungle Giants, Ruby Fields, WAAX, Ocean Alley, The Gooch Palms and more, Concrete Surfers were invited to join the 2019 BIGSOUND lineup and packed out their official showcase venues with raving reviews.
Concrete Surfers started 2020 with an appearance at Falls Festival in Byron Bay on a line up featuring Vampire Weekend, Halsey, WAAX, Amyl & The Sniffers and more. They followed up this with a last minute hometown headliner show to raise money for the Australian bushfires and sold out the gig in 4 days.
The Music labelled Concrete Surfers as “one of the best rock bands to come out of Queensland in recent memory” and their latest single, ‘Shattered Thoughts’ is the perfect, gritty offering ahead of what was a busy end to 2019.
The band is gearing up to release their next single Never Understood and will be touring the country throughout April with more music, festival appearances and live dates to be announced soon.
