Surfer Blood

„Let’s do this somewhere, where Austrian music history happened!“, Surfer Blood suggest. So we catch up with the five-piece band in the old town, after they’ve opened the show for Interpol in the outskirts of Vienna. Even though nights start to be chilly in November, the Florida guys obviously enjoy the aftershow-sightseeing. They set up their gear against the imposing backdrop of the well-lit opera to perform “Twin Peaks“ and continue with “Fast Jabroni“ at the foot of an equestrian statue. Even though we did not have an amp and thus Kevin Williams could not play the bass and Thomas Fekete’s guitar strap loosenes during “Twin Peaks“, the youthful quintet unperturbedly does an animated and sonorous impro with intriguing vocal harmonies. Singer John Paul Pitts is going through a broad spectrum between falsetto voice and nearly yelling, while drummer TJ Schwarz and percussionist Marcos Marchesani put some more drive to it. „My fingers are literally completely numb,“ Thomas says after the highly motivated outdoor session, „that’s what happens, when you are from Florida.“
