Surfer Blood's latest seems to feel pretty conflicted about itself: hooky, Weezer-ish guitar pop offset by desperate, discomfiting lyrics, fleeting hopes of reconciliation quickly dashed by heavy-hearted resignation. Apologies, meet apologies," Surfer Blood's John Paul Pitts sings on "Demon Dance", the lead-off track from his band's second LP, Pythons. Pitts spends most of Pythons pleading, bargaining, rationalizing, trying to make some sense of an increasingly dire situation in any way he can. There's a longstanding tendency in pop music to read too much autobiography into lyrics.
The two years between the Tarot Classics EP and Pythons weren't easy for Surfer Blood. In 2012, singer/guitarist John Paul Pitts was arrested for domestic battery; ultimately, charges were not filed and the case was dropped.
Pythons is the second studio album by indie rock band Surfer Blood. It was released in June 2013 under Sire Records and produced by Gil Norton. Following the release of their EP, Tarot Classics, Surfer Blood had been writing songs whilst on tour.
Whereas Surfer Blood’s first album, Astro Coast, was a cool slab of indie rock, Surfer Blood go full geek on Pythons, and they’re better for it. Demon Dance doesn’t hold one hook back. John Paul Pitts’ vocals are clearer, free of much reverb, revealing a lovably nasal, sweet voice that perfectly suits the Cars-influenced power-pop sound they churn out seemingly effortlessly on songs like Gravity, which twists and turns and keeps you waiting for the next clever verse or catchy riff
