Winston Surfshirt

Introducing Winston Surfshirt, the Sydney-based band quickly winning over fans and industry alike with their unique blend of soul and hip-hop – the auditory equivalent of A Tribe Called Quest splitting spliffs with your parent’s favourite band.

Having developed a cult following with their smooth style and raucous live shows, the band originally emerged as the solo project of singer/rapper/producer Winston Surfshirt, before organically adopting other local artists and snowballing into what is now a six-piece musical collective.

While cutting their teeth on the Sydney underground scene in 2014, Winston Surfshirt quickly won over a religiously loyal fan base. Thereafter, 2016 saw namesake Winston earn nods from triple j and Majestic Casual for the buttery-smooth solo vocal feature he laid on Polographia’s hit track, ‘Sly’.

In 2017 Winston Surfshirt were “the stars of the show”, as touted by Sir Elton John, who counts himself a vocal fan, among others including Zane Lowe (Beats1), Jason Bentley (KCRW) and Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1). After a shining start to 2017 supporting RÜFÜS on their Australian tour and Midnight Oil at their comeback show before their world tour, the band released two critically acclaimed singles – ‘Be About You and ‘Ali D’. With both singles drifting through radio speakers, stereos and headphones around the globe along with a recent sold out national tour, it’d be hard to miss the rapid rise of Winston Surfshirt.

‘Get To Know’ – Cosmo’s Midnight x Winston Surfshirt

It’s the collaboration we never knew we needed, but have always dreamed of <3

With the Cosmo’s twins favouring electro-pop danceability and Winston drifting towards soulful R&B and electronica with a dash of surf-rock, you might have wondered how these two artists would fuse, but oh man, ‘Get To Know’ is a friccccccin banger!

It’s not the first time Winston Surfshirt have dabbled in the realm of electronic music either, featuring on Polographia’s 2016 hit ‘Sly’, which had us all shaking our booties. Now add this one and you’ve got 2/2 bootie shaking collab singles, and that’s a damn good track record if you ask us!

‘Get To Know’ has already been on repeat at HQ in the few hours that it’s been online, and we’re pretty sure you’ll be doing the same when you hear it.

ALSO! If you didn’t put it together already, both artists are on the Groovin the Moo 2018 line up, so the odds of them jumping on stage with each other to play this track live are high, but what do we know? 😉
