THE SURFING MAGAZINES
"Laced with deadly charm, it wraps itself around your ear-lobes and refuses to let go" CLASH
The Surfing Magazines are a new garage-rock group consisting of two-thirds of The Wave Pictures and one half of Slow Club. The band released their self-titled album on acclaimed indie label Moshi Moshi in September
Consisting of David Tattersall and Franic Rozycki of The Wave Pictures, Charles Watson of Slow Club and drummer Dominic Brider, the band also made their debut festival appearance at End of the Road Festival this summer and toured around the country.
Not content with their already ferocious work rate, with three album releases in 2016 alone and over twenty in total between them; members of The Wave Pictures and Slow Club’s 11-track debut as Surfing Magazines is an intriguing and exciting mishmash of musical styles – soundtrack surf, weird pop and Americana.
Pulling in influence from all of the great surf music of the 60s and the band’s musical inspirations of Bob Dylan and Lou Reed, the band are professedly ‘at war’ with today’s pretentious prog-indie-rock millionaires and bongo pop demigods. They intend to ‘rock out and blow your mind, and then mellow out and soothe your mind, then rock out again’.
