Surf City will be releasing their second album We Knew It Was Not Going to Be Like This in August via Arch Hill in New Zealand and Fire in the US/Europe. The band have had a bit of a break and now they are back, having recorded their album in New York, New Zealand and South Korea.
Spin Magazine writes of the first single "the LP's sunny first taste, "It's a Common Life," glows with a West Coast pedigree. Reverb-soaked guitar stabs, a laidback call-to-arms chorus, and ba-ba-ba backup vocals make for a perfectly timed single."
