Surf Dad - Unholy EP

Surf Dad are brothers George and Declan Sands, from Barwon Heads, on the southern coast of Australia.  Their downbeat electronica is on display on their four-track Unholy EP, released September 23 via Zero Through Nine.  For this record Surf Dad has crafted songs featuring pulsing beats, haunting vocal sample and loads of atmosphere.  My current impression is that the first single, "Unholy" (with vocals from Camille Foley), and "No. 5" are the two best tracks, and we've provided them below.  But all of the tracks are good, and the final two minutes of "Mind Reader" remind me of the glorious dub of the UK's Groove Corporation.  The third embed below will allow to to stream the entire album.  Of course, you should test it for yourself, but I like this EP more every time I listen to it.

Unholy EP is available digitally, and later this week will be available on a limited run of CDs.
