Interview - Subsurfer

Subsurfer is a 4 piece band that hails from Southern California. They've been described as if Kurt Cobain surfed. Let's have a chat with them about their music.

- How would you describe your sound?
We describe it as Grit Pop. Indie Pop songs with a Grunge sensibility.

- What do you write about?
Plight of the common man.

- What do you listen to when you are home?
Spotify playlist is loaded with Melodic heavy rock and Indie.

- Your favourite live performance so far?
2 performances both on tour in Oregon. One at Eugene where it was packed night and people lined up for autographs, and the next night outside of Portland in front on 2 people. They hung around for the entire set and gave us a $20 tip, so they must have liked us!

- Tell us a funny story that happened in studio or on stage
I started one of our new songs, in front of 400 people, in the entire wrong key. Only realized after the first chorus - I hoped people thought it was just a jazz fusion version. I made the lead singer have a mental breakdown, he didn’t know how to deal with the chord change.

- Your favourite albums?
HIM - Dark Light. Nirvana - In Utero and a new self titled album from a band called Dummy.

- A musician you would like to meet for a beer?
Alive: Dave Grohl and I actually met Kurt Cobain.

- What would you ask backstage if you were the most important band on earth?
Yoga class just before the set. Calms me down since drugs are no longer in fashion.
