Debut full-length from buzzy Florida band praised by NY Times 'Velvet Underground and punk riffs, reverberating textures, African-style guitar filigrees, grunge crescendos, power-pop choruses headed for anthems and, yes, some surf-rock twang', SPIN 'you ll be hearing more from this band for sure', Rolling Stone 'giant-sized choruses, festooned in glitter and lit up with neon', Pitchfork 'lo-fi clangor, glo-fi harmonies, punchy retro-garage concision, never-out-of-style classic rock song-craft'.
''Surfer Blood know from a good hook, but perhaps what's more promising is how most of their compositions build to their rewards.'' --Pitchfork
''Not that you need notice all the angst for all the crunchy riffs, sunny harmonies, inscrutable humor, occasional strings, and Afropop touches'' --Spin
''The star of the show here is ultimately the group s tuneful popcraft and its subtly gloomy underbelly'' --Filter
''Swim (To Reach the End),'' off their forthcoming debut, Astro Coast, is pure left coast- from the echoing Brian Wilson harmonies to the Weezer-esque power pop chorus. --Pitchfork
You'll be hearing more from this band for sure. --Spin
