Surfer Blood Announce New EP 
Tarot Classics Out October 25 On Kanine Records
Fall Tour Dates With The Pixies

“Surfer Blood know from a good hook, but perhaps what's more promising is how most of their compositions build to their rewards.” Pitchfork
“The star of the show here is ultimately the group’s tuneful popcraft and its subtly gloomy underbelly” Filter
“Not that you need notice all the angst for all the crunchy riffs, sunny harmonies, inscrutable humor, occasional strings, and Afropop touches” Spin
"Velvet Underground and punk riffs, reverberating textures, African-style guitar filigrees, grunge crescendos, power-pop choruses headed for anthems and, yes, some surf-rock twang" NY Times
"Giant-sized choruses, festooned in glitter and lit up with neon" Rolling Stone
