Listen: Surf Rock Is Dead – Zen A
Surf Rock Is Dead’s new single Zen A is a washed-out gem that you need to get to know.
In this era of post-post-modernity where everything has gone to die a contextual death and then be re-incarnated as an awful malapropism, genres are a confusing descriptive phrase more often that not. But Surf Rock Is Dead’s single Zen A oozes a nostalgic surf-pop mood with its washed out guitar riffs and depleted vocals. Indeed, the nostalgia rips away the immediacy of surf-rock, leaving only a spectre but this phantasm isn’t to be dismissed. Instead, the concussive drumbeats and the vocals that roll over everything create this restless mood where you just want more of Zen A.
