You may already be a fan this Brooklyn based trio, and not even know it. In the last few years Nada Surf’s songs have been featured in a number of television shows and movies – they have a certain soundtrack-y quality to their sound. Take a listen to Inside Of Love and you’ll instantly understand what that means….


Kind of a far cry from their days at the forefront of the post-grunge movement. I’ve caught Nada Surf a handful of times, most recently last Friday night at the Bowery. They put on the kind of show you’d expect from a seasoned indie-rock band. Let’s take a gander at Happy Kid:


The band released their latest effort Lucky last week, and is in the midst of a world tour that brings them back to the states in March. Here are the North American dates:

    I’ve always found it interesting to watch these guys try to break free of their curse from that horrible video.

    I like em quite a bit, but nothing is better than noodling 😉

    Yeah I can really vouch for the first couple of albums, but starting with Let Go and the two albums since they’ve crafted some great tunes.
