 Aversion.com | Nada Surf - The Weight is a Gift
Outside of a small handful of pop fiends who lapped up Nada Surf’s indie pop for the past six years and will quite willingly corner unaware passers-by to preach the love for the band, Nada Surf’s still best remembered for its 1996 fluke hit “Popular,” a deadpan shot at the emptiness of the high-school A-list.
The Weight is a Gift positions Nada Surf to continue its indie-pop momentum, as the sharp melodies and literate lyrics are everything college-pop fans have lapped up for years, while the tentative ties to Death Cab through Barsuk, as well as the gentle pop favored by the O.C. generation are there too.
In a time when every popster is working overtime to perfect his or her soft, gentle approach, Nada Surf shows us that you don’t need warm-milk dynamics and hushed vocals to fit into the modern pop landscape.
