Surf City

I never stumbled across this self-titled debut release by New Zealand’s Surf City in 2008, so I'm a little bit late to the party. The EP only holds 6 songs, but each one features these energetic, reverb-heavy guitar riffs that are catchy as hell.

It sounds like a lo-fi, surf rock version of the Jesus & Mary Chain, with an occasional touch of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. I was hooked after just one listen.
