I don’t know much about San Diego-based Wet Years, except that their song No Surf flirts with psychedelic rock thanks to the distant vocals, wavy guitars, and slowly paced drums.

According to Wet Years, “The title comes from a hidden little beach in San Diego. People love to drink, and smoke, and soak the sun there.  We wrote the lyrics about a girl who may or may not have been psychic…”  The loneliness conveyed in the lyrics of No Surf matches perfectly with the dark tones of the guitars, creating an ominous tone as the song builds up like a wave that never crashes.  She walks bored through sand and saltwater, between the rays and drags of cigarettes/Blue skies and stars all shattered over, I knew that you were stuck in the sun.
