SURGEONS IN HEAT – “Why’d You Start” from the New Album – Bored Immortals

It’s interesting what comes into your mind when you listen to a track for the first time.

In the case of the new SURGEONS IN HEAT, perhaps it’s the oppressive heat in my part of the world, or maybe I’m in a nostalgic frame of mind but “Why’d You Start”  takes me back to the hot summers of the 70s with its laid back AOR meets Tame Impala vibe.

The band formed in Milwaukee in 2011, and have three previous releases: “S/T” (2012, self released), Disaster (2015, Top Five Records) and “Going Through the Motions (2016, Gloss Records).

Their new album “Bored Immortals” will be out this week via Maximum Pelt and Shuga Records. 

Front man/ songwriter Johnathon Mayer folds in influences from across numerous decades and genres on the 11 tracks to create a smoldering, sophisticated pop record perfect for the hot hazy nights of summer.

Johnathon Mayer – vocals/guitar

Ryan Reeve – bass

Bradley Kruse – keys/vocals

Sam Reitman – drums
