WATCH: Surf Curse Announces “Heaven Surrounds You” with “Disco” Video
The LA-based surf rock duo will return with their third album, to be released September 13 via Danger Collective Records.
It’s been two and a half years since we last heard from Nick Rattigan and Jacob Rubeck, whose peppy, coastal garage rock as Surf Curse gradually made its way from LA’s legendary DIY factory The Smell to the national scene. Though a bit darker than what we’ve come to expect from the band, Nothing Yet mimicked the bouncy guitars and constant film references of their early lo-fi releases with a new polish suited to their beachy vibe.
On September 13, the duo will return with their second LP for Danger Collective, Heaven Surrounds You. With “Disco” as a forecast for what the record has to offer, Surf Curse sounds brighter than ever with the help of a glammed-out video directed by Rattigan, complete with ballroom dancing. With the promise of more film references and “echo chamber harmonies,” the Jarvis Taveniere–produced LP has our attention.
