SONG OF THE DAY Beach Party – Can’t Surf


What’s this? A band from LA that claim they can’t surf! In the summer of 2014 this is is exactly what Californian four-piece Beach Party wrote a song about!

Can’t Surf highlights their plight and with reasons such as “Oh no, the water’s too deep / Oh no, the shark’s underneath / My skin’s too pasty and white / Ohhhhhhhh … I can’t surf!“ you can’t blame them for not rushing out to pick up a board!

Founded in the fall of 2012 by guitarists/singers Rob Banks and James Hurst, Beach Party are an organically raw garage punk band whose musical journey started out at a drunken pool party!  One year later they were releasing their debut flexi 7” which was produced in a sweaty garage studio by old friend Ty Segall.  Since then they have performed opening slots for Black Lips and Allah-Las which, with a sound nestled in old school surf rock and good old garage grooves, suited them perfectly!

Today’s song appears on their self-titled 5-track debut EP, a record that is seamlessly catchy throughout! For anyone with a love for lively garage punk, this is just the kiddy for ya, I’m loving it!…not to mention the album cover art is pretty damn fine!!
