Hi guys. Here's something I think you'll dig, it's a recent project by my band, Surf School Dropouts.

We took a cool original song by a fellow Danish band, the Beatophonics, and turned it into something Brian or Phil Spector could have worked up in LA in '66 along with the wrecking crew. Very pleased how this one turned out. The video was filmed in our rehearsal space last week.

If you'd like to compare our version with the original by the Beatophonics, you can see their video here. It's really cool but in a more stripped-down Beatles/Merseybeat vein.

The melody sounds a bit like Costello's "Veronica" - But.  More importantly, this is the Best song I've heard by your band.  Think this is the first time commenting on one of your tracks, but I do listen to everything you post.

Forgot to say...  My favorite track on the 2012 record was "Glad You Decided to Stay"-

Followed by "The Road Ahead of Me"  "Follow the Sun"  and all of the interludes!

Thanks guys. Yeah, I think both the cover and the video turned out really well.

And feelflows, glad to know you also like some of our own songs.  Grin Regarding 'Glad You Decided to Stay' which closed our first album; have you heard 'Ebb & Flow' which closed our second album? If not, you might also dig this song as it has a similar feel:
