Nada Surf

At the pinnacle of the band’s popularity in the late 90s, Nada Surf's label, Elektra determined that their then current recording project lacked a "single," but the band stood its ground—and found themselves without a label. Undaunted, they took day jobs and founded their own label, releasing the album Let Go to critical acclaim. They’ve found success outside the chew-em-up-and-spit-em-out machine of the major label system that would throw millions at the devil or worse (Justin Beiber) to make bank on a fad. Nada Surf's music has always had a certain subtle backbone to it — and it's pretty obvious why.
