Watch Surfbort’s “Big Star” video from new Linda Perry-produced album that’s out today
Brooklyn punks Surfbort are back with a new album, Keep on Truckin', that's out today. The band made it with producer, songwriter and onetime Four Non Blondes leader Linda Perry. Singer Dani Miller says that with the album, the band is aiming to remind us that "we're all geniuses and idiots, and that love, humor, magic, and the human sitting next to you are the only antidote to the capitalist hellscape.” You can stream the whole thing below.
The new single from the album is "Big Star," a grungy, riffy rock song that Dani says is about "finding yourself after drug addiction. That life has tons in store beyond your wildest dreams." We've got the premiere of the "Big Star" video, directed by Kii Arens, which puts Surfbort in a Beatles-style press conference, decked out in Gucci attire. Watch the video, plus the "FML" video featuring Fred Armisen, below.
