Surfaces’ Lazy is the perfect addition to your favorite playlist

This isn’t the first time I’ve listened to a Surfaces song. They’re my friend’s favorite artist so, like a true fan, she plays them all the time. She likes to put their albums on shuffle for hours whenever we hang out; I’m no stranger to their music, but out of their songs that I’ve listened to and enjoyed, “Lazy” was my personal favorite.

Forrest Frank, age twenty-four, and Colin Padalecki, age twenty-two, started the band Surfaces in 2017 and released their first album, Surf, in the state of Texas. Since the creation of their band, they’ve produced two albums. Their newest song is the final single being released before they drop their third album.

Upbeat, positive, and happy are the three words I’d choose to describe Surface’s genre of music. Their single, “Lazy,” is no different.

According to their official band website, Surfaces is meant to “spread love and positivity across the world.” They “want every song to be a pathway that can lead anyone to brighter days,” which I think is positively adorable.

The single opens with a cheerful piano beat that is carried throughout the entirety of the song. Next, they introduce the sound of humming, almost as if they are preparing you for the lyrics.

The singer of the group, Forrest Frank, has what can only be described as a soothing, calm voice that makes it easy to sit back and really listen to the lyrics of the song and soak up the meaning of them.

Forrest’s melodic voice could be described as heavenly. His unparalleled combination of smooth and raspy tones adds yet another unique quality to an already unique band.

While you can listen to Surfaces’ music any time of the day, I’d recommend you listen while sitting on your bed and doing your homework late at night. The chill sounding music somehow sounds as if it is wrapping around you and playing from all directions, helping to block out all other noise.

The bright lyrics and beat manage to put me in a happy, summer-like mood. The song made me feel as if I were somewhere warm, soaking in all the sun’s rays.

The only thing better than their music is their album cover. They are all aesthetic, pastel pieces of artwork that perfectly connect to the vibe of their music. Each one simplistic yet detailed at the same time, the same as their music.

Upon digging deeper, the album cover of this song—a pastel sunset with a blue house in front of it—is actually where they recorded their second album, Where the Light Is.

The ending of the song is filled with peaceful trilling, which is a nice contrast to the upbeat beginning of the song, and a sudden fade from the piano, gently bringing the song to a close.

To be honest, I only have one complaint: I wish the song was longer.
