Opening for Iceage, Surfbort Is Riding the Freak Wave

The Brooklyn-based quartet is visually and musically stunning, to say the least, and singer Dani Miller is like no one else in rock music right now. Perhaps this is why ex-Strokes and current Voidz member Julian Casablancas snatched them up for his Cult Records label in October of 2017 and put out their new record, Friendship Music, late last month.

Surfbort’s Dani Miller Is All About Love

Dani Miller, lead singer of Brooklyn-based punk band Surfbort, seems to specialize in shock and awe. Between the band’s music videos—which have depicted Miller as a diabolical cherub who murders straight-laced businessmen—and her rollicking stage presence during live performances, it’s fair to label the 25-year-old a bit of a provocateur. And in the age of the vulgar rhetoric of the Trump administration, doesn’t it make sense to be equally loud and uncouth in resisting?

Known to many as a principal member of Melbourne’s beloved-but-now-defunct Twerps, Frawley recently struck out on his own to record an album with Stewart Bronaugh (Angel Olsen, Lionlimb), and the results are just as melodic and touching as his former band’s material, if not more so.
