Eternal Summers joins the label family, announce new album
March 6, 2018 – The critically acclaimed anthemic dream pop and post punk band, Eternal Summers are thrilled to announce their new studio album Every Day It Feels I’m Dying…, to be released on May 4th on Nevado Music. Today, the band has unveiled the first single, “Forever Mine.” CLICK HERE to listen exclusively on Brooklyn Vegan.
Nicole Yun, from the band says, “The combination of straightforward love lyrics and synth based sugary pop is a new realm for the band. This was the last song to come together on the album, and proved to be a really enjoyable experiment into new sounds and styles. It was so fun and pressure free to record a song like this that we all almost wrote it off like a joke or a song we could keep for our own amusement. I'm glad it made it to the record. People need some joy and fun these days.”
With a tempered song writing process that has spanned over two years, the group finds themselves documenting the many ways that one can cope with disappointment, fear, loss of control, loneliness and depression. The result is 2018’s Every Day It Feels Like I’m Dying…
Though the topics range from emotional numbness to tragedy, to calling out the ugly complacency within one’s self, the musical influences are hopeful, breezy, and even rollicking. Taking influence from Japanese, French and Swedish pop, bossa nova and jazz, the trio still finds a way to meld these new influences into their specific breed of melodic fuzz pop.
Having formed in 2009, Eternal Summers has now been operating as the trio of Nicole Yun, Daniel Cundiff and Jonathan Woods longer then they did as a duo without Jonathan. Long gone are the days of the Roanoke based collective known as the Magic Twig Community that saw the handful of like-minded indie artists working together; but what has grown in place is a band that stands on its own, in the words of All Music, “The kind that other bands will look to for inspiration 20 years later.”
With several previous releases, there has already been a lot said about Eternal Summers music. From the crafty minimalism on their debut Silver, to the dream punk sheen on 2012’s breakout Correct Behavior, to the guitar driven power on The Drop Beneath, the evolution of Eternal Summers marks a band that embraces both anthemic rock and bittersweet ballads - a band that is grounded in jangle pop but with an added depth that rewards on repeated listens.
Eternal Summers never ending tour cycle has seen them play with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Surfer Blood, The Presidents of the United States of America, Cheatahs, We are Scientists, Nada Surf, amongst others.
In support of the new album, the band will be touring all year in the US. See tour dates below.
