If you're reading this, there's a pretty good chance that you know Nada Surf from a certain '90s novelty hit, the Gen X'er, 'Reality Bites'-like high school send up 'Popular,' which made the band a flash in the alternative rock pan. And, to their credit, the New York band has continued into a 20-year, seven album career. Their latest record, 'The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy' -- with a title that captures the band's sense of whimsical dread -- has a singalong highlight in 'Looking Through.'
Sixteen years after releasing their debut album -- and approximately 15 years after most people thought they could safely be written off as a '90s buzz bin one-hit wonder -- Nada Surf is still going strong. In fact, the band's recently released seventh LP, 'Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy,' has earned some of the strongest critical praise of their career.
