MGMT: Congratulations Vanwyngarden, you've made it to a surfing news website

MGMT's new album, 'Congratulations', has been inspired by surfing.

The cover of the record was designed by Anthony Ausgang, and the band thinks that the songs provide a surfy vibe.

Andrew Vanwyngarden, MGMT's frontman, says the song 'It’s Working' is like surfing on ecstasy.

Vanwyngarden has discovered the pleasures of surfing very recently while recording 'Congratulations' in Malibu.

His preferred surf spots include Waikiki, in Hawaii, and Australia's Maroubra Beach.
