New Zealand''s SURF CITY will be releasing the jaw-dropping kiwi guitar buzz masterpiece "Kudos" on the Fire Records label this November. Joining the long line of Fire masters from SPACEMEN 3 to TEENAGE FANCLUB, and sprinkling in that beloved New Zealand avor, SURF CITY are the perfect pack of young chord slashers to take their place on our wall of guitar mavens. Updating the psych haze of the SPACEMEN 3 with the circular drone of ANIMAL COLLECTIVE and the melodies of THE CLEAN with the drive of INTERPOL, SURF CITY is the perfect mix of everything you loved about the early 80''s New Zealand jangle and the 60''s blur of VELVET UNDERGROUND and THE ZOMBIES with the shapeshifting songwriting of today. Formed by Davin Stoddard and Josh Kennedy, they quickly stared banging out catchy nuggets with the aid of Josh''s brother Jamie on bass and Logan Collins pounding the drums. Eventually settling on THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN inspired name, they arrived with their Steve Keene (hunted down for his previous work for PAVEMENT and SILVER JEWS) adorned self-titled debut EP. Keene''s art will feature on the long player as well! "their punky psychedelic pop is impressive" - Pitchfork.com TRACKLISTING: 01. CRAZY RULERS OF THE WORLD 02. SEE HOW THE SUN 03. KUDOS 04.
