Ever since I heard an instrumental snippet of Surge's début track I knew that I'd be excited for the whole thing, and we loved the quartet from the off, "Tears Of Joy" just got things started! George (Vocals/Guitar) has been in a couple of bands we've posted here before, but this new cut from his latest project sounds like the best yet! With influences of The Libertines, Oasis and hints of Arctic Monkeys all there, they've certainly got their genre hit on the nail with "Tears of Joy". Pure Indie!
With a gentle few seconds in the beginning giving way to a anthematic rush of guitars and crashing drums the track, and the guitar tones are spot on here. Their other tracks "When I Love You" and "Loveblood" also show how diverse the band can be within the genre, ranging from a very delicate acoustic tune to an upbeat track even Alex Turner himself would love to call his own!
... and finally "I Don't Know What You Think About Love" reminds me of The Vaccines' first single, it's just a rush of guitars and at such a high tempo it could easily be the cornerstone of their live sets, who said guitar music was dead!
