SURFBORT: Self-titled: 7”

I learned a few things while looking up information about Brooklyn’s Surfbort. Apparently, that is how Beyoncé pronounces the word “surfboard,” and that is what they named the band after. They also don’t believe in Google and like to barf on things. It is refreshing to hear anger and humor being used simultaneously in punk rock. It has always been one of my favorite things and it isn’t all that common these days. I am usually wary of bands with no bass, but the two guitars work together to make sure the sound is still full. Surfbort is scrappy, mean, and fun. The first two bands I thought of were Hickey and Lunachicks. Two bands I absolutely love. Surfbort doesn’t really sound like either of them, but they kind of feel the same way. It works for me. –Ty Stranglehold (Slope)
