Stockton’s Surf Club has been a favorite around here recently, so much so that they garnered a spot in our Phono del Sol 2013 lineup. A couple weeks ago, the band’s track “Reverie” (which we premiered last October) was featured in a highlight video for the IBA World Tour (that’s International Bodyboarding Association, naturally) event in Antofagasta, Chile. As we told you before, the band exhibits some strong shoegaze influences on “Reverie”, with lead guitarist Marcos Gonzalez’s frenetically swirling riffs alongside frontman Frankie Soto’s intoxicatingly droning vocals, and the combo provides the perfect backdrop for the video. Watch it here and then stream the audio below. Sorry for the Dan Cortese clone at the beginning of the video.
Surf Club will be performing on July 13, 2013 at Phono del Sol, alongside Thee Oh Sees, YACHT, Bleached, K.Flay, Marnie Stern, Painted Palms, Blouse, Radiation City, Cool Ghouls, and B. Hamilton as well as some of our favorite local food trucks. Tickets for the festival (presented by The Bay Bridged and Tiny Telephone) are moving quickly, so don’t lag – buy yours today!
