artworkNew on the horizon, the Aqualads have used a relatively trad foundation to build their chunky sound from. This three song ep is a holiday wonderland of reverby surfy holly.

Track by Track Review


We Wish You A Merry Christmas dotdotdotdot
Christmas Surf (Instrumental)

Surfin the carport for that missing gift, welcoming the red suited elf with tidings of good cheer. This is a solid rejuvenation, with raging glissandoes, a choppy beat, and some double picked crunch.

Whammy Wonderland dotdotdotdot
Christmas Surf (Instrumental)

Surfin' with Hugo Winterhalter... a very cool adaptation of this holiday modern classic. Solid, chunky, and very fun. Cool tones, good energy, and a spirited interpretation.

Dingle Balls dotdotdot
Christmas Surf (Instrumental)

Dribbling double picked notes deliver this spirited interpretation of the most familiar of all holiday songs. Slithery, holly driven, and finely honed guitar over a trad surf beat.
