Cody Simpson Gets Wet and Wild in ‘Surfboard’
By Kevin Rutherford
Cody Simpson may have been eliminated last night on Dancing with the Stars, but the Australian singer isn’t bumming too hard; after all, he has a new music video out.
Monday night (April 14), the pop star revealed the clip for “Surfboard,” Simpson’s newest single. With a name like that, one might expect the breezy, sunny pop Simpson is usually accustomed to dispensing, but the song’s neither that nor a Beyonce reference — and the video reflects the new approach.
“Surfboard” starts with quickly strummed electric guitar before breaking into a comparatively slow hip-hop beat, acoustic guitar wafting gingerly in the background. There’s even a breakdown featuring more of an electro beat and catchy whistling.
