Surf School Dropouts- Summer Is A State Of Mind LP. So, how is it that a quartet of musicians from Northern Denmark can release an album on a Spanish label and manage to produce some of the finest Californian sunshine pop albums I’ve heard in a long time. Channeling The Beach Boys as their primary influence, the band weave their magic over 14 tracks of near perfection, featuring songs with the optimism of early summer, the tales of fun in the sun and then the melancholy feel of autumn approaching accentuated by gorgeous harmonies, jangling guitars and also a slight Doorsian feel on tracks like the beautiful “Follow Sun”. Unabashed Brian Wilson love is the whole reason these guys exist and there’s nothing wrong with that. They are one of the few modern bands that can pull off gorgeous surf harmonies as good as this. Import from Spain.
