Nada Surf New Record & Tour


Nada Surf
Beloved New York-based band Nada Surf will be releasing their new record, LUCKY, on February 5, 2008 on Barsuk Records, and are offering fans the opportunity to hear the track "See These Bones" at

LUCKY is Nada Surf's fifth record and third for Seattle indie Barsuk Records, following the successful and critically lauded Let Go (2003) and The Weight is a Gift (2005). The band lineup for almost 12 years has been and still is Matthew Caws (vocals, guitar), Daniel Lorca (bass) and Ira Elliot (drums). The record is filled with songs of restlessness, longing and the elusiveness of love. Yet, in its inimitable way, the band beautifully counterbalances its signature lyrical wistfulness with its singular musical buoyancy. Intimate tunes become we're-all-in-this-together anthems, thanks to the chiming guitars, propulsive beat, and the ever-present yearning in Caws' voice.

"I tend to be pretty hopeful about things further in the future, but full of anxiety about the next eight hours," jokes Caws. "Unlike my friend John Flansburgh from They Might Be Giants, who says he's manic depressive without the depression, I think I'm manic depressive without the mania. Yet I'm ready to be cheerful at the drop of a reason. I'm always looking for rapture in music."

The LUCKY tracklisting is:
1. Weightless
2. Whose Authority
3. Beautiful Beat
4. Here Goes Something
5. From Now On
6. I Like What You Say
7. Ice on the Wing
8. The Film Did Not Go 'Round
9. The Fox
10. Are You Lightning?
11. See These Bones
