Surfer Girl is the new project from Aer frontman Carter Schultz (aka Carter Reeves). While the Boston duo Aer haven’t released music together since 2016, Carter has remained active as a solo artist, building on the momentum that his group created. His new project, Surfer Girl, is both a return home and a step into the future for him. Never one to stick to any strict genre bylaws, Surfer Girl blends hip hop, pop, indie, and reggae, reflecting Reeves’ journey as an artist. The new music will be released via Oakland, CA-based independent record label Ineffable Records.
‘Hero’, my debut single as Surfer Girl, is a raw outlook on the state of our nation. I wrote it from a place of serious frustration during the pandemic, when it became clear that we have no leader. No captain to steer the ship. The Surfer Girl project is my long overdue foray back into reggae; the music that sparked my love for creation and the exploration of sound. Can’t wait to share the entire EP with everyone! It’s got summer grooves, love songs and a touch of some light psychedelic dub. Kick back and tune in!
