Because their live show is louder faster harder and better than literally everything you’ve heard from them before.
They start strong – fast guitars and even faster drums – and they don’t slow down from there.
Despite technical difficulties – no working mic at the start of their set, guitar straps breaking left right and centre – they put on a crazy high-energy show. They bombard you with a wall of sound, and pepper some surf-y undertones and lots of punk overtones throughout their noise-rock set.
Beyond that hard-rocking sound, Regina-based Surf Dads are a crazy tight band. Experts on stage, they hit every note and every perfectly placed pause in complete unison. It’s like they were born to do this together – actually, they probably were.
The group also keeps the audience on its toes – slowing down, slipping into a more of a surfy-type sound, before exploding into that insanely intense wall of amazing noise.
Surf Dads are great on record, but do yourself a favour and go see them live.
