What happens when half of your band members bail to join another band? There are two options, you can sit and wallow in self-pity for a few months, or you can be like Sea Legs and, brush the last band off, get off your ass and start a new one.
Central Coast foursome Sea Legs stand firm with their classic indie rock tracks. Never wavering, the boys push on with a sense of fun and tasty guitar licks.
Sea Legs formed in 2011 when their previous project had to call it quits after half the band members ran off to join Jinja Safari. Central Coast studs Byron Knight (vocals, guitar), Tim Andrews (vocals, guitar keyboard), Eli Milojkovic (backing vocals, bass) and Jacob Borg (drums) caught the attention of triple J with their first singles Boyfriend and Morse Code, both receiving a lot of airplay. With a strong indie rock sound that oozes laid back, east-coast vibes, Sea Legs have said that they pull influence from “Our friends, our families and our lifestyle here on the Central Coast”.
They released their debut EP We Do What We Do When We Do What We Do (try saying that fast three times in a row) in 2013, which featured three singles, once again, all gaining regular radio play. 2014 saw the boys releasing two singles. Take a Little for Yourself has a super relaxed melody during the verses, and a pumping, rock inspired chorus. The second single Christopher Strong has a lot more of an indie rock sound, and has a great heavy energy. And as if their year wasn’t busy enough already, they set off on a massive year of touring, which included playing at the Winterfest and Mountain Sounds festivals, touring with America’s The Growlers and hitting the road for their headline Christopher Strong tour.
Witches Have Friends is their latest single, only being released a few of days ago, which brings us the distinct Sea Legs indie rock sound, with a few pop influences thrown into the mix. It is ridiculously catchy and comes to us in anticipation of their second EP, due to drop a bit later this year.
Seeming like rest is not an option; Sea Legs will be supporting Jinja Safari on their east-coast tour at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory July 31, Brisbane’s Wooly Mammoth August 1 and Howler in Melbourne August 7. They will also be joining The Delta Riggs at their Lismore gig on the July 30. Tickets are on sale now so be sure to get in quick, you defiantly don’t want to miss out on seeing these boys live!
