When you think of West Palm Beach, Florida, the first thing that probably comes to mind is skimpy bikinis and golfing retirees, not indie pop. Surfer Blood, Florida's indie rock four-piece, is making waves with their short summer tour and a stop in CT Sunday, July 22 at The Space in Hamden. Hot off the success of their 2010 debut album Astro Coast and acclaimed 2011 EP Tarot Classics, the band relocated to California earlier this year to record their anticipated sophomore album with producer Gil Norton (Jimmy Eat World, the Distillers). Part surfer rock, part catchy indie pop, the band has created a sound perfect for an intimate setting and a soundtrack for the coming hot summer nights.
