Surfer Blood

(scott) Totally unfamiliar with Surfer Blood, this, their fourth album "Snowdonia" was sent to me by John N.....well, what have we here? Fairly good, fairly standard 2017 alt-rock, straight outta classic, but listenable enough, sort of a singles/radio-oriented sound to's an Amazon review of the album, I've listened to it once, and it is blog-worthy, no question......I like the songs "Six Flags In F Or G" as well as the title track, both, I think would be decent singles, unsure if they were released as such.
(Amazon)-SURFER BLOOD are one of the best young indie-rock bands around, and their fourth album, Snowdonia, is their most ambitious effort yet. Overcoming adversity, the band has artistically grown and thrived. Following the departure of bassist Kevin Williams and guitarist Thomas Fekete (tragically lost to cancer in May), singer/guitarist John Paul Pitts and drummer Tyler Schwarz have rebuilt a talented lineup with guitarist Michael McCleary and bassist Lindsey Mills, all four alumni of the same high school in West Palm Beach, Florida. Pitts wrote specifically with the new band's talents in mind: "When I was writing I was thinking more about background vocals and harmonies. Lindsey and Michael are great singers, and I really wanted that to show in the songs. There are layers of vocals on almost every track, and the call-and-response parts between Lindsey and I are something totally new."
