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.

Nada Surf's music has always had a certain subtle backbone to it — and it's pretty obvious why.
