KEXP Presents: Minor Alps

February 19, 2014Nada Surf's Matthew Caws and Juliana Hatfield performed together for the very first time in KEXP's studios in Seattle. Watch them play "Far From The Roses," from Get There.

Hearing their performance on KEXP, you'd think that super-duo Minor Alps had played for audiences together many times, but this effortless, stripped-down set of lyrically poignant songs was their first live performance — ever. Of course, each member is a veteran of the stage: Matthew Caws has fronted alt-rock band Nada Surf since the 1990′s, and Juliana Hatfield began her musical career in the Blake Babies in 1986, eventually moving into a successful solo career.

Watch Caws and Hatfield perform "Far From The Roses" — and for more, you can watch Minor Alps' entire session on KEXP's YouTube channel.
