Artist Feature: Surfaces

Della Johnson | Staff Writer


Amidst the heavy rap beats and repetitive pop choruses on the forefront of the music charts, Surfaces’ upbeat, minimalistic songs provide a breath of fresh air. The music group, based out of Texas, is made up by Colin Padalecki and singer Forrest Frank. Their songs feature positive lyrics, and the tropical instrumentals that back the vocals play on nostalgia, utilizing classic techniques that reflect a modern audience. In their hit song Sunday Best, they focus more on the idea of feeling your best rather than dressing like it. Though the songs are trending, they mostly carry the same message and because of that, can get redundant to some listeners. Still, the happiness and keep-on-going mindset has resulted in their rising popularity.
