First thing is first, WHAT THE HELL? The first Surfer Blood album was 10 YEARS AGO?!
I feel so old.
Anywho, Karen is their latest release and it is surprisingly chill compared to their first outing (yes, there have been 4 albums and 2 re-releases since but i’m still reeling from this realisation) and their Belle & Sebastian lyrical twee-ness that they have picked up isn’t at all bad.
Catchy chorus propelled by simplistic and danceable guitar riffs galore.
