The latest EP from Surf Dads titled “A Nice Boy” is the perfect garage indie surf soundtrack for anyone’s beach trip. Grab some friends, cold drinks, lay down a towel, hit play and you have yourself the perfect recipe for a chill and mellow day by the water. Regina, Saskatchewan’s Gage McGuire and LA’s Chris Dimas are the duo known as Surf Dads and wrote and recorded “A Nice Boy” in nine hours before Dimas returned to LA.
The EP starts off with “Halifax Street”, a track riddled with regret and the euphemism of opportunistic doors closing. The busy drum and guitar pairing throughout the song reflect the potential feelings of anger and emptiness that go along with missed opportunities.
