Nada Surf

With bass player Daniel taking a nap and drummer Ira nowhere to find, it was singer Matthew’s turn to represent Nada Surf during this early afternoon shoot in April. „I know it doesn’t seem early, but it is early for me“, he says smilingly while rubbing his eyes. After a few lines of „Weightless“, Matthew is warmed up and ready to start into a beautiful cover version of The Go-Betweens’ „Love Goes On“. From his improvised seat on top of a canopy, the guitar chords and Matthew’s amazingly clear voice sound through the sun-drenched, almost picturesque WUK courtyard. Nada Surf play a sold-out show at this venue that night and have just released their cover-album „If I Had A Hi-Fi“, including songs by the likes of Depeche Mode, Kate Bush or Spoon. When we meet Matthew, there seems to be one cover song that is really stuck in his head, although it’s not on the record – „Freight Train“ by Elizabeth Cotten. He suggests to have it documented in the video (and we happily do so) and plays some verses as an intro to the Nada Surf classic „Blizzard of ’77“.
