Surf Curse is the indie rock recording project of Los Angeles based songwriters Nick
Rattigan and Jacob Rubeck. Seeing Surf Curse live has become a right of passage for
disaffected adolescence in the South-West while Rattigan and Rubeck have spent their
formatives years between Las Vegas, Reno, and Los Angeles. Their new
record, Heaven Surrounds You, is a coming of age epic, inspired by the many cult films
they’ve cherished through out their young adulthood that are referenced across the
album’s tracklist. Surf Curse’s songwriting and instrumental orchestration has matured
on their third full length LP, adding layers of polish to their traditionally rough and
visceral sound. Rattigan and Rubeck worked with veteran indie producer Jarvis
Taveniere, carefully crafting a their most lush and vulnerable record to date, during the
fall of 2018. Heaven Surrounds You, satisfies the energy and passion that old fans
would expect from a Surf Curse record, but expands the band’s songwriting to envelope
new audiences into their cinematic sound. - via Grandstand Media
