20 AUGUST 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, multi-platinum selling duo Surfaces release their latest single, “Sheesh!”, featuring Tai Verdes – out NOW via 10k Projects/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The impossibly catchy song is also accompanied by a new visualizer and a live performance video featuring Tai, filmed at Lollapalooza.

In June, the duo released their fourth studio album, Pacifico, via 10K Projects – listen HERE. The project arrived after the success of their singles, “Wave of You”, “Next Thing (Loverboy)”, and “So Far Away”. “Wave of You” continues to rake in massive streaming numbers, with over 34 million global streams to date. The track marked the duo’s biggest solo debut of their career and has been met with wide support across all major DSPs, including key playlists.
Pacifico was recorded by Forrest Frank and Colin Padalecki at a home studio in Malibu, where they sonically channeled the energy of the beach to create the perfect summer album. Pacifico further established the duo’s unique sound, with Ones To Watch writing, “It's not every day a pop-rock band comes along and reminds us of Bill withers, Hall & Oates, Beach Boys and Chance the Rapper all in one breath”.
“We just wanted to make an album that harnessed the feeling of where we recorded it,” Surfaces say. “We decided to get back to our roots and record with home audio equipment in a living room surrounded by nothing but open windows to capture the energy of each day in Malibu. For almost a month we woke up to this special scenic outlook and just made what that feeling gave us, hoping that our fans would be able to hear what we were seeing.”

Surfaces is a Texas-based duo comprised of Forrest Frank and Colin Padalecki. The band formed in 2017, with Forrest manning vocals and production, and Colin handling writing and arrangements, they released their debut album later that year titled Surf. Within a year of partnering, Surfaces’ music began to take off, connecting with fans around the world who found something special in the band’s blend of buoyant production and “no shirt, no shoes, no problem” energy. The enthusiastic response led to two more self-made albums, Where the Light Is (2019) and Horizons (2020) and launched them into global stardom.
The band soared to new heights in 2020 with their global smash hit “Sunday Best” - the double-platinum-certified single peaked at #9 at Top 40 Pop radio, #19 on the Billboard Hot 100, and surpassed 2 billion global streams. The song led to performances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and The TODAY Show. 2020 also saw the duo collaborate with one of their idols, Sir Elton John on the anthemic single “Learn to Fly.”
