I came across The Surfrajettes by accident on YouTube. I got hooked instantly. I was surprised that the group originates from Toronto. Never knew there was great surfing on Ontario Lake. What else could a guy want, surfing music and go-go boots guitar-wielding girls? The Surfrajettes are taking it to another stratosphere with the release of their first full album. Roller Fink promises great things for the group. The 12 new tracks on the album include renderings of Blondie’s Heart of Glass and rock standard Train Kept A-Rollin made famous by both the Yardbirds and Aerosmith.
The Surfrajettes are a four-piece instrumental surfing group from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Since forming in late 2015, the band has charmed audiences with their clever mix of psychedelic rock and reverb-drenched surf music, sky-high beehives, go-go boots, and eyeliner as thick as their guitar strings.
The band achieved viral online notoriety from their homemade performance videos and their feature by Norman’s Rare Guitars in LA. The debut 45 single “Party Line / Toxic” was released in late 2018 on Hi-Tide Recordings to immediate success. The band has toured extensively in its support, including festival appearances at Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender, Nashville Boogie, Wild O Fest in Mexico City, the New England Shake-Up!, Surf Guitar 101 Convention, Tiki Oasis and Hi-Tide Summer Holiday: Asbury Park.
The Surfrajettes are guitarists Shermy Freeman and Nicole Damoff, bassist Sarah Butler, and drummer Anna Liebel. When not on tour, the group is busily woodshedding in their secret beach hut, sewing new miniskirts, debating vintage gear, and daydreaming about performing in a Quentin Tarantino movie.
