WhenTue. 14 Jun, 2022
A group that's been delivering consistently smart, hooky alt-rock goodness to the masses for more than 25 years.
It’s been over 20 years since Nada Surf burst onto the scene with that iconic single ‘Popular’. It was featured on their debut album ‘High/Low’, released in 1996, and the band have been going non-stop ever since. Through the years, the indiepopband have transformed from nerdy rockers into a more mature quartet. This newfound maturity seems them tackle important themes like Donald Trump’s ideology on last year’s ‘Song for Congress’. It also sees them moving into more adventurous territories on new album ‘Never Not Together’, although they never veer too far from their instantly recognizable sound. The band might be at their strongest point since that break-out hit, showcasing their dreamy and fiery pop and tender melodies like never before.
Born in Florida, John Vanderslice has built an impressive career in the music world. He’s a musician, songwriter, producer and sound technician, and also founded analogue record studio Tiny Telephone, a renowned studio which now has locations in San Francisco and the north of Oakland. Since 2014, he’s been a full-time producer there as well, producing for Frog Eyes, Samantha Crain and Grandaddy, among others. He has still found time through the years to create his own music as well, making 10 records, numerous EPs and remixes, and collaborating with The Mountain Goats, St. Vincent and Spoon. Influenced by artists like Death Cab for Cutie, Bright Eyes, The Decemberists and Okkervil River, Vanderslice makes experimental indierock infused with electronic bleeps. He’ll be presenting his most recent album ‘The Cedars’ at Botanique.
