We caught up with our new favorite blow-your-mind punk band Surfbort. Hailing from Brooklyn, Sean Powell, Alex Kilgore, David R. Head Jr. and lead singer Dani Miller, have come to make their mark. Known for their rowdy shows and punk rock style, these freaky babes are all about love and friendship! Check out our interview with Dani Miller below!
Valfre: Congrats on “Friendship Music,” we love it. What was your favorite part about recording this album?
Dani: It’s a collection of songs that have been building up and evolving since the beginning of Surfbort so the whole thing is so special to me. We also had the pleasure of recording with Jonathan Schenke and Chad Ubovich which was a wild process and in the end the universe puked out Friendship Music!
