PREMIERE: Surf’s Up In Yeaman Shore’s Charming Debut Single “Glenelg”


It’s pretty much summer in Queensland now, and that means one thing: time to hit the beach…or y’know watch the cricket, but that’s pretty boring atm! And when you’re heading to the golden sands of Burleigh or the chilled surrounds of Byron Bay, you need two things: a bangin’ track and a killer Hawaiian shirt. Luckily for all you sweltering Aussies, Brisbane artist Yeaman Shore delivers both in his debut single Glenelg.

Growing out of his high school bands, Yeaman Shore is Caleb James’ beach-pop solo project. With the help of some talented local musicians, Yeaman Shore blends the upbeat indie-rock of The Wombats’ debut album with Aussie surf-rock influences like Hockey Dad.

As such, Glenelg features honest lyricism paired with jangly guitars, catchy bass, brooding riffs, and charmingly repetitive choruses. James says the debut single is about going back home for a holiday along with pop-culture references about the split between city and coastal lifestyles.

“Glenelg is a small beach town just outside of Adelaide, I was born there and I normally visit every few years. It’s so serine and calm, and just feels like home.

“Originally, I was planning on releasing another song as the debut single, but the lyricism in Glenelg and the meaning behind it felt pretty perfect to put out first,” says James.

Yeaman Shore will officially release the single this coming Friday, and launching Glenelg with an intimate show at Brisbane’s Milk Factory, supported by local indie-rock darlings Junior Arcade.

So throw on your oldest Hawaiian shirt, pour yourself a Scotch and Dry, and sit back and relax to Yeaman Shore’s debut single Glenelg below!
