Indie rock icons Nada Surf return to Studio 1A for an acoustic set featuring new tracks from their 9th studio record Never Not Together, which will be released on February 7th. Songwriter and frontman Matthew Caws uses the new record to tell stories of tolerance, acceptance, and good will between others, reminding us that “we’re good at love and being kind. It comes naturally to us, but so do other things. You just have to keep looking for the right way to lean, it’s worth everything.” He is joined in the studio by bassist Daniel Lorca and drummer Ira Elliot, who plays cajon for this acoustic performance. They are also supported by long-time friend and collaborator Louie Lino on the keys.
As their U.S. tour is coming to a close, Nada Surf prepares to tour Europe and North America starting in the U.K. in late February.
