SURF FRIENDS / PICTURE BY SASKIA COLEY
Surf Friends' much anticipated album Sonic Waves is out today, featuring the unwavering energy of singles such as 'Something Real' and 'Woohoo', plus a whole lot more to dive into.
The album was mostly written and recorded between 2019-2021, and is their first full length release since their hypnotic 2019 offering, Doing Your Thing.
Surf Friends say of Sonic Waves that “the focus of the record was to keep it raw and more distorted than previous releases. Most of the tracks’ guitars had separate channels recorded via a Peavey Rage 108 distortion amp - as a side note, Jeremy Toy (She’s So Rad, Leonard Charles, Sommerset) put this together like 25 years ago for Brad when he was his guitar teacher! Mark Howden also pushed us a bit in production, which was cool.”
Be sure to catch Surf Friends' magic live at their album release shows in in their hometown, Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland on the 18th of March as well as surf capital Whāingaroa/Raglan on the 25th of March — with support from Power Nap (in Raglan) and King Of The Sadboys (in Auckland). Tickets are available HERE via UTR.
