Wasp Island release debut album

Local band Wasp Island have released their debut album The album was independently recorded and self-produced on the South Coast NSW Australia featuring musicians Trevor Daly (South Durras), Tom Dexter (Broulee), Carla West (Milton), Syd Green (Sanctuary Point) and Owen Crittenden (Moruya) Well known to venues across the South East the album should appeal to south coast locals who are into Australian independent rock music It is out now and available on streaming services (Spotify, Apple Music etc.) and as a CD. The cost of the CD is $20 including postage within Australia - order by sending an email to And after years of playing in various local covers bands, main songwriter Trevor Daly decided it was time to put some original rock music out into the world.

Trevor told The Beagle "The Wasp Island album contains 9 songs reflecting life on the coast in regional Australia and inspired by the music we love. The tracks feature a variety of styles ranging from hard riff rock, politically-themed songs, spacey Floydsque music, and splashes of funk and reggae/ska. Songs that we think would particularly appeal to locals are ‘Summer Terrorists’ (a ska style sly dig at the annual summer tourist invasion of the coast), ‘Dancing on the Beach’ (a funky groove for your next beach party), ‘Made My Escape’ (a fast riff rocker about making the sea change from the city to the coast), and ‘First Star of the Evening’ (a slow building power balled that builds into lighters-in-the-air singalong anthem).

The album has been several years in the making due to band members needing to juggle music-making with day jobs, family and other commitments. And on top of this, delays were caused by recent deaths in the family, fighting the Black Summer bushfires and COVID lockdowns. "Seemed like we would never finish the album," Trevor said. "But now its done we are very pleased to finally reveal our new music to everyone. We hope you enjoy it."
