Meet The Girls Behind: The Beaches
Posted on September 26, 2016
Despite their chokers and platform shoes, The Beaches
are not your typical 90’s like girl-band. Jordan Miller (bass guitar and vocals), Kylie Miller (guitar), Eliza Enman-McDaniel (drums), and Leandra Earl (keys) are killer Canadian musicians with a unique edgy flare!
Started from the bottom, now they’re here.
The girls (also from the 6, more specifically the beaches!!), started learning how to play music just after completing preschool . By high school, they began experimenting with song-writing, where Jordan, Kylie and Eliza eventually formed their first band: Done with Dolls.
While the band helped the girls gain a lot of experience, it was time for their music to reflect their growth from teenie-boopers to young women. And so, they hit up long-time high school pal Leandra, and The Beaches
Their love of rock and roll is obvious; with wide spanning influences including Nirvana
, The Strokes, Amy Winehouse
, St. Vincent, FIDLAR, and Blondie, their songs translate easily to live shows, connecting with any kind of audience.
Writing their music together, the girls share a chemistry (and likely a closet) both on and off stage. Kylie and Jordan are actually sisters, while Eliza and Leandra have been friends for ages — so it’s no wonder the bandmates consider themselves besties:
With wicked music, comes wicked style
. These girls serve up tons of fashion inspo, rocking a mix of retro and ultra-trendy pieces. And the creativity doesn’t stop there. They’ve even designed some of their own pieces:
From touring the UK, to playing Canadian festivals like Osheaga
, and opening for Eagles of Death Metal, the girls aren’t strangers to performing! “Onstage you get to let go of all your insecurities and channel a purely confident person,”
says Jordan. “You get to be really free.”
Eliza agrees, adding, “It can be like therapy. Sometimes you can just focus, forget the crowd is there, and just be so in the moment doing what you do best.”
Long story short: The Beaches
are tremendously warm cool girls with an infectious edge — the kind you’d want to introduce to your parents and then sneak out and party with.
See what all the hype is in their new music video “Give It Up
” – which Jordan points out is actually “not about giving up anything. It’s more about just needing something to change
