surfer blood / Press

“Witlen enjoys discovering new bands. One of his favorites is Surfer Blood. "On a recommendation from a friend, I went to check 'em out. They played in this small venue, where I've seen a lot of shows -- but I've never seen it as packed. You'll be hearing more from this band for sure.”

“Like sweetness accosted by danger and chaos, their blaring guitar pop pairs ringing, lovely and occasionally triumphant melodies with head-rushing swells of noise. They’re onto an exhilaratingly modern sound and have the goods to make big ripples.”

“Their name is a perfect fit, as they’ve got a real Beach Boys-y summertime sound, but with something darker lurking beneath the surface…”

“The band's a little 1980s, a little experimental, and at times, more than a little melancholic. Beyond all the gloomy stuff, though, Surfer Blood's songs are catchy as hell and incorporate Of Montreal-style harmonies that mitigate its maudlin mood.”
