Archive : Surf City Album Launches

“New Zealand's Surf City are getting such big buzz that the hype has made its way halfway around the world.” – NEW YORK'S OH MY ROCKNESS

New Zealand's Surf City returns to Australia to support the release of their debut album Kudos (out on Popfrenzy on September 3rd).

Three years in the making Kudos features eleven tracks filled with warm, fuzzed up and frenetic guitar pop. It's a sound pioneered by fellow Kiwi bands like The Clean and The Bats in the early 1980's. But, Surf City have have moved the sound forwards into the new millennium. The album was recorded and mixed by the band themselves over the last year and a half mostly in bedrooms, basements and various studios.

Having already shared the stage with Interpol, MGMT, Dinosaur Jr, Battles as well as playing at the Big Day Out and Laneway Festival, Surf City are back in Australia better and louder than ever.
