Bio

Surreal Nation is a five-piece, female fronted, indie rock band from the Philadelphia area. The band formed in August 2014 as a folk-rock duo when Paul Joseph and Nikki Nation met a soccer match.  

Jackson Vari, Kevin Curry, and Gene Nelson were added over the next two years. The band now plays throughout the country. They bring a unique blend of high energy indie rock with a bit of jazz progressions, no doubt influenced by Paul, Jackson, and Gene’s history of playing in jazz bands.

Their dynamic new EP, I Know Better, marks a high point in their evolution into a multi-faceted 5 piece band. No Depression Magazine branded it as “a winner”. Beat Magazine described it as “bound to be one of the most talked about indie records of the year.” The chemistry between these musicians is incredible and it has allowed them to take their music to places they never would have imagined!
