Nada Surf

‘Spot the influence’ is a fun game for every errant music snob to indulge in of a Winter’s eve. Frustrating perhaps when you shout out ‘Weezer’ ‘Death Cab for Cutie’ or ‘Simple Plan’ here, only to find that the band your disectiing – in this case, Brooklyn’s Nada Surf – actually are the influence. Their unassuming, hook-laden guitar pop has been a big draw since 1992 and their latest long player Lucky confirms that their way with a spectral Byrdsian pop moment is deserving of your love.

Garage, Glasgow, Sat 23 Feb.

Nada Surf and Waters

Pop melodies and skewed guitar licks from NYC outfit who sound like REM on an Americana tip.
