This Weekend I’ll mostly be listening to: Surf Friends – Dreams are real EP April 6, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to..., Uncategorized.

Here’s an outfit I like a lot. A New Zealand group from the 2000s and 2010s, on the legendary Flying Nun, surely they were made for that label, who in their songs manage to produce something with guitar bass and drum machine that riffs on the greats of Flying Nun but also adds something – I’m not quite sure what, to the mix. It could be a sort of almost Factory records post-punk sensibility. So the garage rock aspect is shaped into something cooler, more glacial but also more chaotic (Swell Maps come to mind). They’ve not recorded in a while unfortunately, having two albums to their name, the last released in 2013. They’ve a raft of singles and this EP, from 2016. It’s a good one.
