Once upon a time, some kids from West Palm were chilling at an Ultra Music Festival afterparty in Miami, and they started talking about forming an indie rock band.
We can't be sure if these guys were sober or not. But thankfully, they were serious, and Surfer Blood went on to create one of 2010's most beloved indie debuts.
That record, Astro Coast, was chock-full of chill guitar riffs, catchy yet under-the-radar hooks, and mellow, retro atmospheres -- everything needed for hipster gold.
The four-piece has turned a lot of heads, even opening for every indie kid's favorite band, the Pixies, on last year's Doolittle Lost Cities tour. Now the Blood boys have got a new EP called Tarot Classics. And to help promote it, they're hitting the road.
