South Jersey indie rockers By Surprise have started work on their new EP for Boston indie Topshelf Records. The EP will be produced and engineered by Dave Downham (who was also at the helm of their 2011 Topshelf debut,Mountain Smashers) at Familyre Studios in New Jersey, where such artists as mewithoutYou and Sufjan Stevens have recently recorded.
