Never Not Together
Nada Surf has announced the release of their long-awaited new LP, NEVER NOT TOGETHER, arriving via Barsuk on February 7. It’s the band’s ninth studio recording -- their first in almost four years -- and is heralded by the crashing new single, “Something I Should Do,” which is accompanied by a new video and can be listened to and viewed below. NEVER NOT TOGETHER sees Nada Surf – Matthew Caws, Daniel Lorca, Ira Elliot, and their longtime friend and collaborator, Louie Lino – continuing to pursue their humanistic vision of the world through hooky, catchy rock songs with sharply drawn, yet tenderly felt, lyrics. Recorded earlier this year at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Wales, the wide-ranging collection revels in the group’s ability to evoke and reflect grand and intricately wrought emotions, whether through sweeping guitar solos or hushed-whisper vocals. Songs like the spectacular “Looking For You” and the shimmering mid-tempo “Just Wait” are empathetic, warm, and powerfully urgent, marked by Caws’ ongoing lyrical quest for 21st century love and connection.
“We’re all together, and that’s just the way it is, and the way it always will be,” says Caws. “That’s the sacred truth of it.”
