OLD SVRFERS is the years-in-the-making collaborative brainchild of Josh Mason and Brad Rose (Charlatan, Altar Eagle). While elements of each musician’s signature sound are evident across Ain’t Scared of Shaka – such as Mason’s fragile nostalgia or Rose’s burly synth squall – OLD SVRFERS is its own beast altogether. There’s a lot of playful contradiction throughout, with wistful melodies sampled from days gone by dipping right into rhythmic, clanging industrial vibes. At once confounding, familiar, visceral, and relaxing, Mason and Rose have combined their sonic powers to create an unexpected and entirely compelling journey that shreds from start to finish. The boards are waxed. The waves are crashing. SVRF’S VP.
