Hailing from the Woodstock/Saugerties region of New York, Surmiser has released a full stream of their new EP Hold The Static. Formed in 2012, Surmiser is a three-piece from Woodstock, New York which came together with the goal of infiltrating music scenes everywhere. The band takes inspiration from a wide variety of punk, grunge, rock, metal, and alternative bands, which you’ll notice in the band’s upbeat sound.
Hold The Static sees Surmiser tapping into their 1980s and 1990s punk and grunge roots. The EP is four new songs littered with sarcasm, humor, uncloaked anger, and a complete unwillingness to compromise for the listener’s comfort. The songs were recorded by guitarist and singer Jay Andersen at his Bohemesphere Studio in Saugerties, and mastered by Oliver Ackermann at Death By Audio in Brooklyn.
