Based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, BIG SURF takes instrumental surf genre signatures -- the pounding drums, twangy guitar melodies swimming in oceans of reverb - and spices the mix with progressive song structures and lively world music influences.
Hang 11 continues the wave of their first CD, Action Heroes (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/bigsurf),pushing the boundaries of Surf with a little bit of hot rod, some spy, a bit of techno and even some ska, all surrounded with plenty of reverb and just a hint of world influence. It’s still got that comic book feel in sound as well as graphics that takes you on a wild Big Surf ride. "This is a very refreshing release. Well developed arrangements in adventurous and original territory. 'Dune Dance' rules! 4 Stars" -Phil Dirt of Reverb Central. Check out the unsolicited CDBaby customer reviews below!!
Redefining a sound pioneered by Dick Dale,Los Straightjackets, and The Ventures , BIG SURF'S music has been called "a unique and infectious brand of surf for the adventurous" Phil Dirt of KFJC-FM Los Altos Hills, California and Reverb Central. “The surfabilly stalwarts ride the surf-guitar wave with heart and originality” Chris Riemenschneider- Star Tribune- Dec. 31st 2004.
