Surf Club is a four-piece band out of Stockton, California with a penchant for shoegazey pop. Yesterday, they just released their 2nd digital single, a track called “Heaven”, since their debut EP last year round abouts the month of February.
A song about broken love, Surf Club crafts a tune that, although slightly melancholy, is also surprisingly hopeful and optimistic. And of course, this is a characteristic that is also played upon and reflected in the overall tone of the tune. Lo-fi sensibilities noticeably lie at the heart of this track’s production, yet there seems to be slightly more refinement around the rough edges and a little bit more of an underlying pad of surfy ambiance within this tune in compared to the mixing of some of their other excellent work released over the course of this past year. The result is lovely. Combining together their own influences, like Craft Spells, with the feel-good vibes of northern California, Surf Club has harnessed a sound that is indeed, heavenly.
