Nada Surf return with their ninth studio album ‘Never Not Together’.”Empathy is good, lack of empathy is bad, holy math says we’re never not together,” singer Matthew Caws declares at the end of “Something I Should Do,” a crashing powerpop track with an insistent melody that adds urgency to his thoughts about 21st-century life.
With their new album, Nada Surf— Matthew Caws, Daniel Lorca, Ira Elliot, and their longtime friend and collaborator Louie Lino—continue pursuing their humanistic vision of the world through hooky, catchy rock songs with sharply drawn, yet tenderly felt lyrics. Never Not Together, out on Feb 7th is a wide-ranging collection of songs that revel in the group’s ability to evoke and reflect grand and intricately wrought emotions, whether through sweeping guitar solos or hushed-whisper vocals.
The concept of “holy math” which informs that line—and the album’s title—was inspired by a Justin Vernon appearance on the Song Exploder podcast, where the Bon Iver leader talked about the interconnectedness of humans. “We’re all together, and that’s just the way it is, and the way it always will be,” says Caws. “That’s the sacred truth of it.”
