Nada Surf are returning to Dublin for a show in The Button Factory in March. Matthew Caws and co are currently working on the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed eighth studio recording, ‘You Know Who You Are’, and live album, ‘Peaceful Ghosts’ (recorded alongside Vienna’s ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra and Potsdam’s renowned Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg), due sometime in 2020.

2018 saw the New York City-based band celebrating the 15th anniversary of their seminal album, ‘Let Go’. In addition, Nada Surf recently marked the 20th anniversary of 1999’s North 6th Street, a long-unavailable collection of early demos recorded upon the band’s initial formation, making it available on digital services for the first time.

Nada Surf – Proximity Effect | Golden Vault

Being popular is a dangerous thing. Just ask Nada Surf, the Brooklyn trio thrust into the global spotlight in 1996 thanks to their MTV smash video for their comical song Popular, which poked fun at the traditional high school politics of jocks, nerds and cheerleaders. The problem, of course, was that their debut album ‘High/Low’ didn’t contain any more comical anecdotes poking fun at the Hollywood version of the American coming of age.
