The city of Stockton has made the number one spot on Forbes’ “America’s Most Miserable Cities” list for years, but there’s certainly no shortage of great bands coming out of this tiny East Bay town. From Craft Spells to Whirr, now Surf Club has joined the ranks of noteworthy Stockton-grown bands. On April 23rd, Surf Club will share the stage at Slim’s with Beach Fossils. Could there ever be a more like-minded lineup than two dreamy bands that both boast ocean-related names?
Surf Club’s newest single “Swoon” is a shoegaze-inclined pop song appearing on the A-side of Death Party Records‘ latest split 7”. The single is understated, lovely and definitely worth checking out. The record is a super limited edition pressing that’s part of the LA label’s new split singles series called Nothing to Lose.
The B-side features two songs from Oakland’s Manatee, the instrumental power jam “Theme (Dugong Sing-Along)” and a cover of Big Boys’ “Which Way to Go”.
