NYC indie icons Nada Surf release their long-awaited new album, NEVER NOT TOGETHER, via Barsuk and City Slang.
It’s the band’s ninth studio recording — their first in almost four years — and was heralded by singles, “Something I Should Do,”“Looking For You” and the most recent and warmly embraced “So Much Love” which are all available now for streaming and download.
“Caws has flourished into an adroit chronicler of love and confusion… Never Not Together feels like an old friend open to new tricks. Familiar bittersweet flavours are sensitively tweaked but Nada Surf’s cathartic heartbursts remain in perfect harmony.”MOJO – 4 stars ****
It feels exactly what the music world needs right now – the concept threaded throughout the record is how we’re all connected, no matter where we’re from or who we are. It’s positively overflowing with all the the things that make the band great – it’s positive, and full of kindness and hopefulness.
About the album:
NEVER NOT TOGETHER sees Nada Surf – Matthew Caws, Daniel Lorca, Ira Elliot, and their longtime friend and collaborator, Louie Lino – continuing to pursue their humanistic vision of the world through hooky, catchy rock songs with sharply drawn, yet tenderly felt, lyrics. Recorded earlier this year at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Wales, the wide-ranging collection revels in the group’s ability to evoke and reflect grand and intricately wrought emotions, whether through sweeping guitar solos or hushed-whisper vocals. Songs like the spectacular “Looking For You” and the shimmering mid-tempo “Just Wait” are empathetic, warm, and powerfully urgent, marked by Caws’ ongoing lyrical quest for 21st century love and connection.
“We’re all together, and that’s just the way it is, and the way it always will be,” says Caws. “That’s the sacred truth of it.”
Long hailed for their unique ability to create deep emotional bonds with their live audience, Nada Surf will celebrate NEVER NOT TOGETHER with a major world tour. U.S. headline dates are already underway, kicking off in Seattle on January 14 and so far they’ve announced dates across the Atlantic including stops in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Additional dates – including dates in Australia and at top-billed festival appearances – will be announced soon.
