“Somewhere” is out via Astralwerks: Stream
Surf Mesa is back with a new single, “Somewhere,” featuring Gus Dapperton. Focused on the ripples of an ill-fated relationship, Surf’s mid-tempo indietronica pairs perfectly with Dapperton’s intoxicating lines on longing and irreparable damage.
Although his breakthrough single, “ily (i love you baby)” feat. Emilee is a tropical house smash, Surf is not ready to be defined by a singular sound. The excellent balance of indie-pop-inspired synths and instrumentation on “Somewhere” is reminiscent of peak Foster the People in the best way and proves the future is bright for the 20-year-old artist. The track arrives with a video showing Surf Mesa pursuing the vibes of endless summer with LA skateboard crew GRLSWRL.
In our May interview, while considering the future ahead of his first gold-certified single, Surf Mesa shared: “I wish that people can see me as an artist larger than [“ily (i love you baby)”]. This is a result of my foundational passion to create music and there is so much more to come.” With his first solo single of the year, the artist born Powell Aguirre certainly does not disappoint.
“Somewhere” arrives following Surf Mesa’s official remix of Marshmello and Halsey’s “Be Kind” and his unstoppable hit, “ily (i love you baby)” skyrockets beyond 400 million streams. While more collaborations are on the horizon, his latest with Gus Dapperton appears as the two artists savor massive music years. In addition to Dapperton delivering his sophomore album, Orca on September 18th, the New Yorker features on BENEE’s hit, “Supalonely.”
