Surf Rock Is Dead release ‘Under the Radar’

Thomas Bellflower August 13, 2015

Listen to “Anymore” here.

Brooklyn’s jangly surf sound welcomes Surf Rock is Dead with their newest single, “Anymore,” and debut EP set to be self-released on Sept. 18 th.  The track, which premiered with Under the Radar illustrates the band’s sensibility for dreamy new wave and reverb-drenched vocals, a sound that defines the new EP.

Members Kevin Pariso and Joel Witenberg, hailing from Chicago and Melbourne, respectively, met in New York City. After deciding to jam one day, the duo wanted to explore the music deeper, and a band fell into place.

That exploration led to a few highly praised songs released online, all included in the EP: “Equinox,” a soaring wall of guitar, “Late Risers,” a dreamy haze ribboned by its Cure-inspired bass, and “Zen A,” a song as swelled out as the waves that open the track.

Check out their tour dates below:
8/14 – Brooklyn, NY at Baby’s All Right
8/15 – Brooklyn, NY at Union Pool
8/19 – New York, NY at Mercury Lounge w/ Day Wave (Showcase)

8/21 – Brooklyn, NY at Cameo Gallery
