Canadian four-piece The Beaches share their latest single ‘Me & Me’ in anticipation of their forthcoming album Blame My Ex, via AWAL.
Canadian indie-rock/pop band The Beaches share their latest single ‘Me & Me’ in anticipation of their forthcoming album Blame My Ex, out September 15 via AWAL.
‘Me & Me’ serves as a follow-up to the band’s previous single ‘Blame Brett,’ released late spring and accompanied by a playfully irreverent music video and serving as a compelling, angsty anthem for all members of the broken hearts club. ‘Blame Brett’ has reached #1 on Canadian Alternative Radio, and is currently sitting across over 10 Spotify viral charts including the UK, peaking at #2 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 charts and #21 on Spotify's Daily Viral 100. Later this year the Beaches will be performing at Lollapalooza before embarking on their North American headline tour.
‘Me & Me’ is a spirited, infectious anthem for anyone overcoming the perils of being single. The track swiftly captures listeners’ attention with its escalating tempo, eventually culminating in a beach-y, soft rock jam perfectly suited for the summer. Throughout the song, an infectious guitar riff rolls smoothly in the background while the distinctive alto of lead singer Jordan Miller asserts the group’s determination to conquer heartache and loneliness with moxie; “save your pity, bitch / it’s kind of fun, just me and me / won’t waste my life self-loathing.” High-spirited and addictive, ‘Me & Me’ is yet another perfect example of the charisma that distinguishes The Beaches as one of contemporary rock’s rising stars.
Named after the neighborhood they lived in, The Beaches is composed of lead vocalist/bassist Jordan Miller, guitarist Kylie Miller, keyboardist/guitarist Leandra Earl, and drummer Eliza Enman-McDaniel. Forming in their mid teens whilst in high school, The Beaches went on to forfeit a typical university experience to pursue their careers in music - a topic that is often addressed in their lyrics. After releasing their self-titled EP in 2013, the group landed a major label deal with Island Records in 2016, releasing their debut album Late Show and a string of EPs under the label.
They have garnered over 60 million combined streams and currently have over 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify where they recently appeared on the cover of the Lorem playlist. Having sold 30,000 albums in Canada, it’s no surprise that they have found themselves awarded with six #1 singles on Canadian Alternative Radio. The Beaches have opened for iconic acts such as The Rolling Stones and Foo Fighters, as well as many other critically acclaimed artists (Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morisette, The Aces, Passion Pit, and Eagles of Death Metal).
Their last album was described by Elton John as “The best rock album of last year,” and they’ve been recognized with two Juno Awards: Rock Album of the Year (2022) and Breakthrough Group of the Year (2018).
