Surf Dads – All Day Breakfast

Sunday 09th, April 2017 / 12:00
By Aja Cadman

Grind Central Records

While it is doubtful that Regina duo Chris Dimas and Gage McGuire are fathers, they are the talent behind the Surf Dads. After releasing three EPs, they come at us with their first full-length album, All Day Breakfast. While it might be a little bold to call them the fathers of surf, this album is warm and breezy and encapsulates the young energy that summer brings. The first of 12 tracks, “Up All Night,” is reminiscent of bands like Weezer and Alvvays, with the fast guitars, nimble drums and starry-eyed vocals. It speaks to the mistakes we make and the remorse that often follows. It’s like doing the walk of shame in your head. Beyond the catchy hooks and shimmery riffs, there is substance in the lyrics. On one hand you have the track “Pinpoint,” where “dig your own hole / I’ll pass you a shovel” is hollered out, only to have Beach Boys like harmonies in “Apologies” two tracks later. Yet the album flows well, the energy is wired and to resist the urge to dance like a maniac would be futile.
