Video of the Moment #1425: Surfer Blood

Sunny West Palm Beach band Surfer Blood have returned with a brand new promo for ‘Say Yes to Me’. According to the description of the video on YouTube, Warner Brothers dropped them (terrible news!) and they were scrambling last minute to make a video for this song. Read on:

We had just been dropped from Warner Brothers and knew we were doomed financially– we would have no budget and very little time. Our plan was to shoot the entire video in one night at a diner called Howley’s in our home town, West Palm Beach. Howley’s was a frequent hang-out for our dinner breaks during recording of the ‘Tarot Classics’ EP as well as the demos for ‘Pythons’. The staff was accommodating and we managed to get the all the shots we needed in one night, while the bedroom shots were filmed in Thomas’ mom’s guest bedroom later that same evening.

Honestly, had I not read that what had happened, I’d not even known anything was wrong. The song feels like the sunnier moments of 2010’s ‘Astro Coast’, coming across as even more poppy than their big hit ‘Swim’, and if I were a Warner Brothers exec, I’d be angry with myself right now. Watch the video below.
