surfer blood Pitchfork Artist Profile: Surfer Blood

West Palm Beach’s Surfer Blood, while still in their early 20s, have penned an album’s worth of catchy, summery songs that even the most hook-laden power pop band would be jealous of. Meeting at an after party for Miami’s Ultra Festival, the band used the remainder of their scholarship money to purchase equipment and start the recording process in their dorm room at Florida Atlantic University. The result is their debut album, Astro Coast, released in January 2010 by Kanine Records. Their first single, “Swim”, with its deliciously deafening swaths of reverb and feedback, comes across like early Orange Juice covering every song on Weezer’s Blue Album at once.
