Surf Harp is a five-piece from Baltimore, Maryland. Their 3rd record, entitled Mr. Big Picture, is a concept record that draws inspiration from the most mundane subjects: the corporate life. A mild departure from their previous records, the band trades in their slack art rock from a sound that’s experimental which includes vacuum cleaners and power tools.
Glitched and skewed, “D.I. CIG” is a ballistic pop trip. Tight grooves glide along retro sweeping synths as a hail of weird guitars and sputtered electronics pile in. Amidst the messy shuffle, the track’s motorik beat stays in stride to accompany the obligatory head bobble. Its post-cubicle thrash.
