about

Hailing from Chicago and Melbourne, Australia respectively, Kevin Pariso and Joel Witenberg together make up the Brooklyn duo, Surf Rock is Dead. Embodying the beachiness of their namesake's genre through a new wave filter, the band have spent the last two years crafting an infectious brand of dream-pop in the vein of Diiv, Day Wave, and Beach Fossils.

“The phrase ‘we have no friends’ is a running joke and half-truth between the band.” Says Pariso about the namesake of the EP. “When we formed the project we would spend late weekend nights jamming and writing music instead of spending it out with friends. Putting time into a creative project definitely can hamper your social life but the idea is that the fruit it bears will be worth the sacrifices.” 

Those sacrifices paid off when the band went to record, using music as a way to escape the day-to-day grind and hot NYC summers. Ultimately, the duo was able to build off each other from similar shared experiences to turn song and lyric ideas into the anthemic dream-pop of the five-song EP.

‘We Have No Friends?’ will be released September 22 on both vinyl, and digital formats. Vinyl versions include their debut 'SRiD' EP on the b-side.

Track Name: In Between
THE ONLY THING THAT WAS IN THE WAY
WAS NOT CLEAR, PLEASE SHOW
AND EVERYTHING THEY SAID WE COULDN’T BE
I SHED MY FEAR, YOU KNOW

GO HOME
GO HOME
BACK TO WHERE YOU USED TO BE
MISSED JOKES
SHADOWS
FILL THE AIR
IN BETWEEN

THE CITY IS SO BRIGHT, YOU CAN SEE
THINGS HAVE CHANGED, SO MAD
AND EVERYONE YOU KNOW, CAN ONLY BE
PREARRANGED, SO SAD

GO HOME
GO HOME
BACK TO WHERE YOU USED TO BE
MISSED JOKES
SHADOWS
FILL THE AIR
IN BETWEEN

TODAY IN THIS WORLD
MY VOICE IS GONE
WASHED AWAY
RETURNING HOME
DOESN’T FEEL
ALL THE SAME

WHEN MEMORIES
ARE ALL WE HAVE
WHEN ALL WE HAVE
IS IN OUR HEADS
Track Name: As If
SLEEP IS NOT THE SAME
WHEN SHARING A BED
CAN I SHAKE THIS PHASE?
IT’S HEAVY ON MY HEAD

BRIDGE AND BLOCK TO GO
ADVENTURE FROM THE START
“WHY’D YOU MOVE SO FAR?”
“TO SEE IF YOU’D STILL COME”

IS IT REALLY WORTH
TO SEE YOUR LAST ONE
JUST TO MAKE THEM FEEL
AS IF THEY’RE STILL LOVED?
