There’s a good chance you’ve either sung or shared songwriter and producer Surf Mesa’s 2020 single “ily (i love you baby)” (featuring Emilee), which was recently RIAA certified Platinum after over 2.5 billion global streams and nearly 4 billion TikTok videos, reaching #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic chart and #2 on Top 40 radio. By the end of 2020, “ily” landed on Spotify and Amazon’s top songs lists. And this year, VEVO named him one of their DSCVR “Artists to Watch”. Whether he’s making sunny, chill-out songs or sharing his remixing prowess— Marshmello and Halsey’s “Be Kind,” and Shawn Mendes’ “Wonder”—it seems, everything this 21-year-old touches turns to warm, glistening, buttery gold.
Surf’s new single “Lose My Mind” (featuring Bipolar Sunshine) releases June 4 where he continues to help us reconceive, reimagine and, most importantly, feel the love through his music. “What will love feel like in the future? We’re at the edge of living in a cyber world — the important stuff, what will forever remain real, is the head and the heart,” he explains. “‘Lose My Mind’ tells the story of love in the future, ‘losing our minds’ trying to feel something real as love in a digital world.”
Here’s a day in the life of Surf Mesa.
