Surfbort





Surfbort shares their "Friendship Music," plays album release show at Baby's 10.27

There’s a cognitive dissonance seemingly inherent to New York punks Surfbort and their forthcoming record, Friendship Music. The record’s single “Pretty Little Fucker” is a fast and loose ride of chromatic chord changes and classic dissonant punk energy, with vocals from Dani Miller occasionally dipping from yelling sing-speak into melodic territory, leading one to believe that the choice of Friendship Music as a record title is some ironic inside joke given the track's aggressive nature. But in dissecting the band's lyrics, wherein Miller states she “feels so good, no alcohol, no booze” and “can really only get high off of you,” the heart soars for the genuine, authentic affection that informs the song. It’s a fun, fast example of the care at the core of punk music that’s often ignored by wider audiences - a beautiful, twisted pit of love that subverts expectations.

Surfbort will bring their punk-drenched empathy to Baby’s All Right on October 27th for their Friendship Music release party - it’s free if you RSVP ahead of time. Ahead of that, stream “Pretty Little Fucker” below. - Connor McInerney

Punkers Surfbort to play Villians 10/23

NYC-based  Surfbort may have the noisy heaviness and aggression of other bands, but they offer a definitive lack of angsty bravado and instead boast flippant tongue-in-cheek lyricism and unfiltered vocalism that smacks of real, visceral vigor and musical gut-punches. Their latest  EP. Bort to Death, is 4-tracks worth of rough-'n'-tumble, old-school punk that will leave you dreaming of deep diving into your nearest circle pit. Luckily for you, you can make that dream a reality and catch Surfbort at their latest show at Brooklyn's Villian on 10/23. - Olivia Sisinni

Playlist! Oh My Rockness' list of 'NYC's Hardest Working Bands of 2016'

Our friends at OhMyRockness know a thing or two about what band plays where in NYC, and every year in December they publish the list of the local artists that played the most shows in the past 12 month: it's the 'NYC's Hardest Working Bands of 2016' list. It must be noted that, since OMR's deals with "Indie Rock" live listings, you won't find any songwriters or DJs or funk bands in this list. It seems like all bands are guitar based too for some reason. Since we were in the mood, we created a Soundcloud playlist of these ten artists, check it out below!





Ready to embrace punk's nihilism? Surfbort plays Bowery tomorrow (11.11)

In this new version of America we've all woken up to, you don't need a genius to predict a punk resurgence in the upcoming years, in its most nihilistic forms and shapes. Brooklyn's Surfbort, then, don't need to go anywhere sound-wise, since that's exactly what they've been playing since their 2015 debut single 'Trash.' The notes from their following, self titled EP (released in January) prophetically read: "this is a record that laughs in the face of the end of the world." Since their appearance on the scene, the young rebels have been filling up most of the small to medium size venues in NYC, while never missing the opportunity to roll over their filthy stages - an essential trait of any true punk musician. Tomorrow (November 11) they'll have a lot of room for that trick, since they'll playing at the Bowery Ballrom for the second time this year, opening for Thee Oh Sees. For those frustrated by the election results, it may be a good opportunity to let out some steam...
