Nada Surf You Know Who You Are on LP + Download
Nada Surf has always been a quintessential New York band, wielding big guitars and heart-on-sleeve lyrics, fueled by artistic ambition, casual cool, and sarcastic smarts. Founded in 1992, the group has only grown more creative and resourceful as time has marched on, each consecutive release notable for the quality of its craft as well as singer/guitarist Matthew Caws' ongoing growth as both songwriter and human being.
Brimming with midlife wisdom and teenage vigor, the band's eighth full-length record You Know Who You Are, may well be the most representative collection of Nada Surf's two decade career, capturing in its ten engaging tracks every beloved facet of the band while also pushing those sounds towards whatever comes next.
You Know Who You Are was produced by long-time comrade Tom Beaujour at Nuthouse Recording in Hoboken, NJ. The album marks the band's first as an official quartet with the core unit – singer/songwriter/guitarist Matthew Caws, bassist Daniel Lorca and drummer Ira Elliot – joined by indie rock gunslinger Doug Gillard on guitar.
