Biography

Nada Surf has been a band for 10 years — longer than most of their living peers have been out of a car seat. If you know your stuff, you know the story. If you don’t, here it is. We begin where all good things outside of Seattle do — in NYC:

Matthew Caws and Daniel Lorca met in high school and play around the city in a few short-lived bands, eventually forming a trio ... Read more in Amazon's Nada Surf Store

Prior to Let Go, Nada Surf's most notable achievement was "Popular"--their 1996 hit single and MTV staple that cast a cynical eye over dysfunctional US high school relationships to the sound of crunchy, Pixies-esque college rock. But with this, their fourth album, they're a world away from the sweaty dorm-rooms that spawned them. Like their peers Weezer, Nada Surf have matured without all the negative aspects that might imply: flitting between driving power-pop, blue-skies post-grunge and acoustic rock balladry, Let Go is an enchanting and subtle album that consigns the band's curmudgeonly, satirical edge to the dumpster. It's often beautifully simple: the curious "Blonde on Blonde" finds frontman Matthew Caws singing of listening to Bob Dylan on his headphones as he strolls in the rain, while "Happy Kid" is a wide-eyed rollercoaster ride that boasts not a single cynical bone in its rosy, plump frame. Add this to the fact that there's some wry-but-muscular rock songs here that could take Rivers Cuomo on at his own game (see the fluorescent punk-pop rush of "The Way You Wear Your Head") and it suddenly becomes clear that Nada Surf are far more than "Popular"--they're a smart, alluring, attractive 21st century rock band that are so over high school it hurts. --Louis Pattison

I discovered Let Go after hearing the fabulous 'Blonde on Blonde' on the soundtrack to the German film 'Summer Storm' - I was convinced that it was Josh Rouse, but waited for the end of the credits to see that it was these guys. There are two other brilliant songs here, 'Blizzard of 77' and 'Inside of Love': all three are absolutely as good as pop music gets, managing to be both personal and universal at once and doing what Neil Tennant said that all great pop should do, making you 'feel happy feeling sad'. There are other good tracks here, but this album is absolutely essential for these three songs alone.

This is a new injection of life into a rock and roll scene that has become depressingly predictable. Nada Surf have conspired to write twelve cleverly thought out, beautifully structured songs that still demand repeated listens weeks and months after first hearing them. When comparisons to other bands are sought, the most-used similarity is drawn with Weezer - now, although Nada Surf share the three minute pop song sensibility, their songs are so much smarter and edgier than the average power-pop band.
Opener 'Blizzard of '77' sets out to prove this - just an acoustic guitar and vocal for the whole two and a half minutes, confounding people that were expecting fuzzed-up guitars and vocal harmonies. However, they aren't long in coming - Way You Wear Your Head, Hi Speed Soul, Happy Kid and Treading Water are all perfect three minute blasts of controlled aggression with vocal harmonies to die for - catchy, melodic, powerful, exactly what they should be. You can hear their appreciation for bands like Teenage Fanclub and Big Star, and it appears that Nada Surf are flying the same flag.
The standout tracks are the slower, darker ones - Dylan homage Blonde On Blonde is exquisite, all A minors and F majors underneath softly sung vocals. Equally, Inside Of Love owes something to Blur's Coffee And TV, but the acoustic/electric guitar interplay lifts it up to another level altogether. Fruit Flies, meanwhile, begins as an acoustic ode to rotting fruit - bizarre, I know - and develops into a crashing, uplifting wall of noise. If this is the Nada Surf blueprint for the future, then we've finally found a band worthy of carrying the 'Big Star' torch.

I bought this album on the strength of the first track ('Blizzard of '77) which made a lasting impression. This is a great track because of strong songwriting and simplicity, a contrast to much of the music on of 'alternative' radio here in the UK. The rest of the album is uneven in comparison but I think this is because there are some very good tracks and some which aren't necessarily poor, just a bit less special. 'Blonde on Blonde' is mesmerising, it radiates rainy afternoons and is the album's stand-out track. There are happier moments though, 'No Quick Fix' is a sing-along, perfect moment with your mates type affair. Personally I would have preferred the introspective territory on this album to be explored further, because good songwriting which is both melancholic and uplifting is hard to come by. Overall this is a fine record, and is a good example of what bands should aim for after their teenage angst period.

The opening track 'Blizzard of '77' made the hairs on my arms stand on end... from there on in I was hooked!
This album is REALLY good! Melodic but with a hard edge it ranges in power and intensity from one end of the spectrum to the other - The exquisite 'Blonde on Blonde' brings to mind the ballads of Neil Young, while at the other end of the scale 'High Speed Soul' is pure rip-roaring rock'n'roll!
For long-standing Nada Surf fans 'Let Go' represents something of a change in musical direction for the band, but believe me it is still worth it!!
For newcomers, this is a great introduction to the band - buy it!

As a fan of the first single, massive US and EU hit POPULAR, i bought hi/low and then the proximity effect and loved them both in their own unique way. They capture a kind of grunge rock rock that was happy and dramtic, whilst still rough and energetic. So what a suprise when I picked up Let Go.
Rarely does a band shift genre so effortlessly, I even had to check the sleave to make sure it was the same line up. The bands history of tough deals from record companies explains their absence, but not the change in direction. Let Go features the kind of heart led accoustic honesty that is normally left to the oldies and the modern ne'er do wells. The single The way your head is probably as exitable as the band get on this album. That however is not a bad thing.
The album opener, blizzard of 77, sets the theme for the album, which meanders beautifully from the calm of Happy Kid ("I'm just a happy kid"), to the almost sinister Killian's Red ("if i told you the truth, you wouldnt like what i said, i almost believed I was dead...there'll be no more crying tonight") , the lively Hi-Speed Soul and heavily influenced Blonde on Blonde.
If you like bands like Third Eye Blind, Semisonic, and tv shows like Dawsons Creek, My So Called Life and Party of five, then you are like me. This means you will like this album. Your life (well...) will not be complete until you have drifted off to the end of the album's ecstatically under played and hook laden Treading Water and dreamy Paper Boats ("sit on a train, reading a book, same damn planet every time I look").
The band will be known by some for their one hit, but forget about that. This album is a new begining and a new direction for a great band. This album sits compfortably in my top ten, superseeding hundreds (thousands?) of other albums I have, including their first two offerings.
I cannot recommend this more.
