Nada Surf release new single, "So Much Love"

Nada Surf has announced today's premiere of "So Much Love," the latest iconic single from their long-awaited new LP, Never Not Together. The song is available for streaming and download now.

"'So Much Love' is a song that celebrates good will between people," says Nada Surf's Matthew Caws. "Sometimes it can be hard to remember that it's there. But it's all around us. A little tolerance and acceptance can be built on. Small gestures add up. We're good at love and being kind. It comes naturally to us, but so do other things. You just have to keep looking for the right way to lean." 08 Jan 2020

We are honored to announce "I'll Send You the Stars: Songs of James Mendenhall", a celebration of the life of James Mendenhall, frontman of Pacific Northwest indie-rock band, The Prom. The album is a collection of songs written by James and performed by many of his friends and former tour-mates, as a homage to the incredible songwriter that he was. Under The Radar is premiering two of those songs today performed by Benjamin Gibbard and Telekinesis, ahead of the full record's digital release tomorrow, Friday, January 3.

All of Barsuk's profits from sales and streams of "I'll Send You The Stars: Songs of James Mendenhall" will be donated to Cancer Pathways, a 501(c)(3) non-profit in Seattle, Washington.
