Dude…what??? I pressed play on this Indian punk rock band Doctor Zebra‘s music video and immediately heard the sound of skateboarding and had to re-read the title of the song and only THEN noticed the song is called “Surfer Girl”…flashbacks to Screeching Weasel and The Queers came flooding back to memory.
The song then itself drops and WHAT – stoked to hear this sound coming out of India! Definite a solid nod to 90’s pop-punk…The video itself is pretty rad too showing the band members handing out flyers to a show…the show takes place at a Bollywood style party that isn’t going so well…people are bored out of their mind hearing the same Bollywood style beats and sounds (very reflective of what is probably the current case in India) until the band shows up, takes over the stage and jumps right into this punk rock number.
You have to watch it…at 6 minutes long – it could have done with some shortening hahahaha…but worth watching!
The song is the title song off their EP which they released in 2014:
