This indie dance duo is a big deal in its home country. They were nominated by ruling youth radio station Triple J for an “Unearthed” award when the band made its break in 2010.

Jamie Treays is a singer-songwriter from London who performs under the moniker Jamie T. He was born in Wimbledon on January 8 1986. He began playing at open mic nights in south west London, after attending one held by Alfie xxx, then of Larrikin Love.

Beach Baby are a London-based four-piece whose apathetic alternative-pop finds it roots across Athens, Dorset and Sheffield. The band met in the musically-rich halls of Goldsmiths College, where co-vocalists Ollie and Lawrence placed an advert looking to build on their then-folk-driven, dual songwriting partnership: future bassist Iraklis turned up dressing like a 50’s college freshman (and swiftly got the gig), before drummer Shep completed the equation. Balancing their escapist sound with make-do jobs ranging from a teaching assistant to feature-film script readers, the band have arrived fully-formed at the striking aesthetic of Beach Baby.
