Ladies and Gentlemen! Copenhagen, Denmark. Maybe not the most logic place for a band to emerge with the obvious surfing pedigree of a band like El Ray. The band show a versatility of sound and an ear for catchy, toe tapping melody’s which embrace the listeners both into - and beyond the cliches of the surfing genre. El Rays combination of fresh, modern style with a polite salute to the history of surf - it´s 'surf with a twist'. El Ray welcome you to the new, classic sound.
The bands 4 full length releases, the two 10" inches and the singles are known to have been recorded during blizzards, heatwaves, and pandemics, far away from the Californian lifestyle. Every album has received excellent reviews! Whatever the secret is, El Ray keeps on giving you the sweet goose bumping, hair raising instro-surf!
El Ray's merits have proved the band to be a serious contender in writing and performing modern instrumentals that would make your hifi-stereo A GO-GO!! The four Scandinavians have built their own brand within the surfing circles since 2001 and have headlined the biggest surf festivals around the world. El Ray is well known for mixing their dynamic, cool, punked up surf tunes with a spoonful of rock'n'roll and a tad indie to make everybody happy when "it's better to be surf than sorry".
Better Surf Than Sorry - it's time to join the party!
