Surfbort, are a relatively new punk band from Brooklyn, The band plays fast anarcho punk, but also feels like a weird trash. Although Surfbort sounds vintage, the songs on their debut album, Friendship Music, are relevant to 2018, tackling topics from global warming and gentrification to Trump and the government. They’re an incredibly fun listen, yet at the same time, clear skill and craftsmanship is detectable among each anthemic lyric and electrifying guitar riff or drum beat.|
