From Surf Friends formation in early 2009 songs have flowed blending the alternative pop sounds of Flying Nun bands such as The Clean with new experimental waves of No Age and Deerhunter. Surf Friends are driving a new alternative pop dance sound.

Surf Friends are Brad Coley (guitar, vocals, keys, synth, drum machine), Pete Westmoreland (bass, keys, vocals).

Two bandmates with a massive sound. Surf Friends have often been compared to Joy Division and New Order. They have
immense energy in their live performance where you'll find reverberating guitars, bass, synth, keyboard, looped samples, a solid drumbeat and vocals that'll get you dancing.

After releasing their self-titled EP in 2009, the following year they released their debut album 'Confusion.' Having toured and played many shows with amazing bands since these releases the duo managed to sneak in a double-single release 'Sunny Day' & 'Sun Raw' in April 2012 while working hard on their sophomore album 'Endorphins.' Endorphins is set to be released late 2013 on legendary record label Flying Nun Records and backed up with a full national tour of New Zealand.

The first single 'Chance' off their upcoming sophomore album was released in July 2013 and has been well received, with solid air play on 95bfm. It was number 1 on 95bfm Top Ten for three weeks in a row and a total of six consecutive weeks in the top ten.

'Endorphins' will be released Friday 15th November 2013 on Flying Nun Records with the release show set at Auckland's Lucha Lounge the following evening, also marking the start of the bands national tour that will stretch across the country into early December.
