This week’s Radar stars in the mag are Surfer Blood an excellent Florida band that are putting a sun-bleached dystopian spin on the classic surf-pop sound. We like em a lot. They’re signed to Kanine Records in the US, who’re the folks that brought you Chairlift and their ilk.


That Florida sand really heats up in the midday sun

So as a download double-header, we’ve got some right treats in store. First up is a total exclusive rarity that you’ll literally never get anywhere else for all eternity. It’s a song called ‘You’re A Friend’ that the band recorded as a birthday present for their mutual pal (tsk, cheapskates…) the second is their splash-hit (sorry…) Swim (To Reach The End). Enjoy.
