WATCH: Surf Curse Live Like a “Midnight Cowboy” in New Video
The West Coast garage rock duo get all Jon Voight in the self-directed clip for their latest single.
Surf Curse like movies. They have songs called “Cronenberg” and “Heathers” and “Fire Walk with Me” and “Doom Generation” and now—in the year of the yee-haw—“Midnight Cowboy.” The second single from the September-slated Heaven Surrounds You, the Schlessinger-inspired track has arrived with the same glitzy, neon-soaked sheen the duo has been brandishing since 2017’s Nothing Yet, which is nicely complemented with a Vegas-lit video homage to the titular 1969 film.
The five-minute cinematic clip follows the pair’s video for lead-off single “Disco,” both of which were shot and directed by the band themselves (Jacob Rubeck and Nick Rattigan). Although they’ve maintained a consistent sound through their six-plus years as a band, their crisp videography is a far cry from the low-budget sounds of their lo-fi debut.
Heaven Surrounds You is out September 13 on Danger Collective Records. You can pre-order it here.
