The Dodos share new single "The Surface," plus Spring tour dates onsale now
Posted 03/29/2019

Today, San Francisco indie duo The Dodos, have shared a new track, "The Surface."

Explaining the inspiration for the one-off release, singer and guitarist Meric Long stated, "Back in the fall after finishing our first tour in what seemed like ages, a bunch of ideas that were floating around seemed to converge, and this song "The Surface" is the first result of that."

"For those guitar nerds out there, I recently acquired a Recording King parlor guitar, it doesn't look like much on paper but it is magical and I am squeezing it like a life raft through the next batch of songs. Perhaps it is age, or just compounded cynicism, but there is an overwhelming gratitude that I feel when any small bit of inspiration sheds it's light, and the path ahead seems relatively clear."

The Surface is available now digitally via the Polyvinyl store.
