Do you like summertime? The beach? Waves? or lo-fi guitar licks? Then you’ll love the newest sound in Surf Rock the Hindu Pirates! The Hindu Pirates consist of Austin Ferreira, Ben Tinsley, Casey Snyder, Derek Bostelman, and Joey LoBasso. They may be young but they are redefining the genre of surf rock with lots of garage rock and punk influences. Along with gigging all over Orange County, or more known as “The O.C” these guys have been featured in OC Weekly’s Locals Only, received endorsement from Altwater surfwear, and had a spot in the indie music webseries Metrogum. ( Wait a minute thats us! ) Focused on having a good time, this group is breathing new life into a genre lost decades back by writing tunes that are fun to listen to and easy to move with!
The video above is some behind the scenes footage from our Metrogum.com segment on the band. It was shot inside the drummer’s Ben Tinsley’s garage one hot afternoon during their rehearsal. Take a moment and check out the latest news of what they are up to over at Facebook
