Spill Your Heart
The Dark Beaks are from Dunedin, New Zealand. Dunedin is on the south east corner of the South Island of New Zealand, elbowing it's way into the sea where the south west Pacific Ocean and the Southern Ocean meet. Next stop, Antarctica. It is known for producing alternative guitar bands and musicians, also being the home of the Clean, the Bats, the Chills, the Verlaines, Straitjacket Fits, Snapper, the Great Unwashed, the Renderers, the 3Ds, Sneaky Feelings, David Kilgour, Alistair Galbraith, the Dead C and many more. The Dark Beaks grew from this tradition; their sound shaped by Dunedin's DIY attitude, indifference to musical trends and the isolation of living on the edge of the world. Andrew Jamieson writes the songs, plays the guitar and sings. He's been writing songs and playing music in Dunedin for about 15 years. First with a band called Munky Kramp in the 1990s. Then with the Dark Beaks.
