Bonding over the love of 90's music and in particular the Grunge scene, the exciting four-piece BLACK SURF last month released a fine track in 'Lights Out', which is taken from the forthcoming 'Make Friends With Hell' EP.
The band describe 'Lights Out' as having a "Weezeriness' about it and they wouldn't be wrong - distorted harmony as the fore of a simply brilliantly exciting song that puts a fresh spin on grunge-influenced rock. Highly creative, the release is delivered in a straightforward manner which serves to hold the listener's attention throughout.
'Lights Out' was produced by Lee Smith at Greenmount Studios in Leeds (Yard Act, The Cribs), along with the other tracks that will make up the aforementioned forthcoming EP release.
Described as an unrequited love song, the band said of the release: "..by far the most organic song we ever wrote, lyrically. That melody felt like a cosmic gift - like it was given to me. So much so, I thought it was someone else’s song. It was very little work on my part. I just put the words down that matched what I was feeling. Lyrically, it was inspired by Erykah Badu’s ‘Next Lifetime.’."
Comprised of Ali Epstone on vocals and guitar, Phil Jones also on guitar, Tom Ramsden on bass and Tom Moore on the drums, BLACK SURF are a tight unit who are experts in creating addictive songs such as this latest release, With previous praise from Alex Zane and Rock Sound Magazine, BLACK SURF are in for a huge end of the year, creating a huge platform for their 2024.
