cool new band: Surf City

Surf City's self titled debut EP came out back in November of 08...but i didn't actually hear it until this week. (thanks to my brother for turning me on to this). it's just a solid indie pop record full of catchy hooks and plenty of memorable choruses. they are from New Zealand, so it should be no surprise that their sound recalls The Tall Dwarfs and The Clean as well as the Jesus and Mary Chain (whom they take their name from the song "Kill Surf City"...with a little Pavement thrown in for good measure. they wouldn't sound at all out of place on a mixtape in between a Pastels and Shop Assistants track either. the whole 80s/early 90s indie revival is a welcome thing for someone who is a sucker for a good pop song.
