Surf Curse – Forever Dumb
The band that could be playing your Prom
They describe themselves as “the band that could be playing your prom, if the Prom Queen was covered in pig blood an killing everyone inside”. That is actually quite right, and alongside Surf Curse bands as Seattle based Prom Queen and The Fright would make a pretty good line-up.
Surf Curse can be described as a mix of those other two bands. Their less garage than The Frights and harder than Prom Queen, share the themes in their music that contains love story through a cinematic lens.
