Brooklyn glampunk-formation Surfbort is named after a lyric from Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love”. After various line-up changes, Dani Miller remains as the only founding member. Tales about those formative years are quite legendary – one of the former members even jumped from a five-story yacht after an adventure at the minibar. These days Surfbort has found the right balance amidst the waves: the 26-year-old Miller assembled the experienced unit of David Head, Alex Kilgore and Sean Powell and the band found a home in Julian Casablancas ’Cult Records. Fans of The Pretenders, Hole and former Yeah Yeah Yeahs can thank their lucky stars for Surfbort.
