Surf Lads is an indie surf rock band formed in 2016 and coming out of Quispamsis, New Brunswick. They started out with a heavy Beach Boys influence, writing songs in Jonathan Marino's basement, however, their style has evolved dramatically since then and is now a much more unique and modern sound.
The five-piece consists of Jack Qurion on vocals, Jonathan Marino on drums, Ben Cookson on keys, Wyatt Reynolds on guitar and Zachary Pelletier on bass.
Beyond the band's shared love for classic hard rock and modern indie music, each member's individual taste and style comes out very clearly in the music. In almost any song acorss the band's discography, influences become very evident from frontman Jack Quirion's passion for broadway musicals contrasting drummer Jonathan Marino's progressive rock/metal background.
Surf Lads debut album, "Broken Hearts & Board Shorts" coming out in late July of 2018 will definitely be something to look forward to.
