The Beaches are a Canadian alternative rock band from Toronto, Ontario, consisting of singer and bassist Jordan Miller, guitarist Kylie Miller, guitarist and keyboardist Leandra Earl and drummer Eliza Enman-McDaniel.
Sisters Jordan and Kylie Miller joined with Enman-McDaniel and guitarist Megan Fitchett in their early teens to form the pop punk quartet Done with Dolls. That band undertook a tour in 2011 opening for Allstar Weekend, and performed the theme song to the Family Channel teen sitcom Really Me. By 2013, Fitchett had left and been replaced by Earl, and the band adopted a more adult sound and the name The Beaches.
They released two EPs, The Beaches (2013) and Heights (2014), before signing to Universal Music Canada and Island Records in 2016. They released their debut full-length studio album Late Show in 2017. The album was produced by Emily Haines and James Shaw of Metric.
