Austinmer indie pop group Shining Bird are on the cusp of releasing their debut album Leisure Coast and have just shared this promo video celebrating their home town.
Playing like a campy tourism clip from the 1980s, The wonders of the Leisure Coast video shows off Seacliff Bridge, views from the escarpment, and the region’s surf as the band play golf, skateboard and fish their way around the Illawarra.
Leisure Coast, to be released on September 6 through influential Australian label Spunk, is the latest highlight of a big year for the band.
Virtually unknown at the beginning of 2013, Shining Bird have blossomed as they picked up support slots for several high-profile national and international bands, as well as scoring big praise through Triple J and FBI Radio airplay.
Shining Bird are soon to release details of their first ever headline dates as part of their album tour, including a special hometown launch concert in Wollongong in October.
Stay tuned for more information, as well as an interview with the band, in coming weeks.
