After almost a decade, legendary New York rockers Nada Surf are finally returning to Australian shores to celebrate not only the recent release of their seventh full-length record The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy, but also their entire back catalogue for the first time ever.
Nada Surf is a name synonymous with music lovers the world over and one that tirelessly transcends their 1996 hit ‘Popular’ with a discography of what many describe as perfect indie-pop/rock.
Nada Surf formed in New York in 1994 but it wasn’t until 1996 that the band released their first full length studio album High/Low through Elektra Records. The song ‘Popular’ from that album became a summer anthem across the globe. In 1998 the bands sophomore record The Proximity Effect received rave reviews, resulting in a heavy touring schedule across continental Europe.
But it was in 2001 when the real gold began to flow – the band parted ways with Elektra and began making arguably some of the best indie-pop/rock records America has ever produced. Let Go came first in 2002, spawned the hit ‘Inside of Love’ and forged a path that eventually led to four more brilliant albums – The Weight Is A Gift(2005), Lucky (2008), a covers collection If I Had A Hi-Fi (2010) and the brand new The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy (2012).
The band maintains healthy touring in America, South America, the UK and across Europe but, until now, Australian fans have been starved on this attention for almost ten years. With a whirlwind tri-state tour that includes Sydney’s the Annandale Hotel, Melbourne’s The Corner and the famous Spiegeltent as part of Brisbane Festival, the band is promising a setlist pulled from their 16 year/seven album career.
