Surf Friends Drop New Album 'Doing Your Thing'

Surf Friends Drop New Album 'Doing Your Thing'

A.B. / Friday 26th July, 2019 10:45AM

Tāmaki Makaurau guitar / electronic pop pals Surf Friends have finally lifted the lid on Doing Your Thing, their first long player since 2013's Endorphins. Living up to the promise of singles 'Outdoors' and 'New Wheels', Doing Your Thing layers chiming guitars and pulsing electronics over an insistent rhythm section for a collection of tracks that fizz and bounce like a big ol’ wave. Making a virtue of minimalism, duo Brad Coley (vocals, guitar, drum machine / sampling / programming) and Peter Westmoreland (vocals, bass, and longtime 95bFM Drive surf reporter) are at their best on tracks like 'Let’s Go Out Tonight', telling a whole story with just two chords and the words “Let’s go out tonight, feels like the first time I met you”. Earnest, optimistic, and straight-up, Doing Your Thing (Mixed, Mastered and Produced by Mark Howden) sounds like cracking a few beers with your best mate and is out now on Flying Nun Records – catch them tearing it up at their album launch party this Saturday at Thirsty Dog...
