MAGIC HOUR, the band’s fourth LP, was recorded at Electric Lady, an iconic studio founded by Jimi Hendrix and located in New York City. Produced by Chris Coady, the album includes a number of never-before-heard tracks along with the highly energized single, “TVI” and power pop anthem, “Sugar.” MAGIC HOUR sees Surf Curse testing the boundaries of their seasoned indie rock approach, exploring a wider range of sonic styles and colors than ever before. The album marks not only the DIY veterans’ Atlantic Records debut, it serves as official introduction to two new members of the band in Noah Kohll and Henry Dillon. The newly expanded lineup allowed for Surf Curse to push their already ambitious songcraft even further than ever before on tracks like the blistering album-opener “Arrow” and the somber rock of “No Tomorrows.”
“MAGIC HOUR is our excitement about rock music and being in a band,” says guitarist, Jacob Rubeck, “This album is the excitement of starting something that we all can feel good about with each other, but also progressing as creative people and throwing in that magic. We’re feeling that magic, what’s brewing in the air and what’s existing in what we’re doing together.”
Founded in Reno, NV by Nick Rattigan (lead vocals, drums) and Jacob Rubeck (guitar), Surf Curse have been crafting a multifaceted sound informed by indie, punk, pop, psych rock, and more for nearly a decade. 2020 saw the band’s breakthrough with the surprise TikTok success of “Freaks,” which saw the track earn over 500M worldwide streams and RIAA Platinum certification more than eight years after the release.
