Featured Eternal Summers stories

In this space, I usually try to write something about whatever connecting threats might run through the five videos I pick for the week. That’s not happening this week. I absolutely cannot think of a single thing that these five videos have in common with one another, other than me enjoying all of them. So:… More »

Eternal Summers – “Come Alive” Video

Last month, dream-pop trio Eternal Summers released Gold And Stone, and we premiered the video for the title track. Now they’ve shared another clip, this time for their sweet indie-pop track “Come Alive,” featuring a failed brunch that takes an unexpected pleasant turn. Eternal Summers gather for a disappointing meal of uncooked biscuits from their… More »

Eternal Summers – “Gold And Stone” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Eternal Summers’ fourth album, Gold And Stone, is out today, and in anticipation of the release they’ve shared a video for the title track. It’s a subdued, black-and-white clip that occasionally features bursts of color that flicker in, covering one of the figures, before rescinding back to the two-tone palette. The song is the same… More »

Eternal Summers – “Come Alive”

Virginia dream-pop trio Eternal Summers know the power of their name. They never lose sight of the horizon-wavering, shimmering heat that their moniker evokes, making sunny pop with just an edge of intensity to it. “Come Alive” is insistent and rubbery pop, following up their previous single, the misty “Together Or Alone.” At times, “Come… More »

Eternal Summers – “Together Or Alone” Video

Last month, we premiered Eternal Summers’ new single “Together Or Alone,” the first track from their upcoming fourth album Gold And Stone. The Virginia trio recently shared the stop-motion animated video for the song, which was directed by Japhy Riddle. It stars a honey badger who lives in an alcove in the woods and look… More »

Eternal Summers – “Together Or Alone” (Stereogum Premiere)

Virginia indie-pop duo turned trio Eternal Summers are back less than a year after offering last spring’s The Drop Beneath. Today they announce their fourth album, Gold And Stone. Continuing to combine crystalline pop sensibilities with ’90s alt-rock influences, the band displays its distinctive musicality on lead single “Together Or Alone.” Mildly distorted guitars, quick… More »

Eternal Summers – “Never Enough”

There are a ton of bands out there playing ramshackle twee-pop, but many of them come off as rote ’90s revivalists. That’s never been the case with the Roanoke, Virginia trio Eternal Summers, who play the music straight-up, but who bring a real sense of verve and life to it. The band’s new album TheMore »

Eternal Summers – “Gouge” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

With their new full-length record The Drop Beneath hitting shelves next month, Eternal Summers have tapped their single “Gouge” for a music video rich with imagery. Lead vocalist Nicole Yun ponders some heavy lyrics (“Gouge my eyes out”) in front of projector screens displaying various serene nature scenes; and facial closeups and video overlays create… More »

Eternal Summers – “Gouge”

Eternal Summers got some well-deserved attention in 2012 for their album Correct Behavior, and are now set to release its follow up. “Gouge” is the first single off The Drop Beneath, and considering the song begins with the line “gouge my eyes out,” it’s a surprisingly pretty piece of music with a crisp guitar line… More »

Eternal Summers – “Good As You” Video

Virginia indie-pop C86-throwbacks Eternal Summers released a terrific LP this past July, Correct Behavior, which has been unjustly overlooked on most of the year-end lists I’ve seen so far. So it’s a good time for the band to drop another video from the album (by my count its fourth!), reminding those of us who make… More »

Eternal Summers – “You Kill” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

We wrote about Eternal Summers’ terrific “You Kill” a little while ago — “deliriously upbeat, C-86-ish pop full of chiming guitars with fat, fuzzy distortion” — and the clip for the track captures the song’s wonderful combination of teenage excitement and sadness. It’s like a mumblecore short (trading the mumbling for the band’s roaring guitars),… More »

Eternal Summers – “You Kill”

The sophomore album from Virginia’s Eternal Summers, Correct Behavior, is set to be released in two weeks; we’ve already heard two tracks from the album (“Millions” and “Wonder“) and now the trio has dropped one more. “You Kill” is deliriously upbeat, C-86-ish pop full of chiming guitars with fat, fuzzy distortion and melodies that go… More »

Eternal Summers – “Wonder” Video

Virginia indie-poppers Eternal Summers release their new album Correct Behavior next month, and they’ve already released a video for first single “Millions.” Now they’ve got a clip for another song, “Wonder,” and it follows what happens when a suburban skate-punk attempts to turn her homemade yarn dolls into her friends. Lurid Pictures directs. Watch it… More »

Eternal Summers – “Millions” Video

Virginia indie-pop duo Eternal Summers have a grainy, vintage-looking video for their new single “Millions,” and it’s all about the sisterly joy that can be had in driving out to the middle of the desert to shoot guns and break shit. It’s fun! Johnny Woods directs. Watch the video and download the song below. More »

Eternal Summers – “Millions”

Virginia indie-poppers Eternal Summers, who recently expanded their membership from two to three, return this summer with the sophomore album Correct Behavior. Below, we’ve got a download of “Millions,” the LP’s first track. It’s a catchy, skittery sigh of a song, and it is well worth your attention. More »

Eternal Summers – “On My Honor”

Last time we heard from Eternal Summers was via a remix of the Virginia pop duo’s “Pogo” by Baroness drummer Allen Blickle. He didn’t touch “On My Honor,” a song from their limited-edition split 7″ with Super Vacations. More »

Eternal Summers – “Pogo (Allen Blickle Remix)”

Last January we posted a remix of Surfer Blood’s “Swim (To Reach The End)” by Baroness drummer Allen Blickle. Then, this past summer, he recast the Florida crew’s “Twin Peaks.” Surprising? Not really. When I posted Baroness’s “Swollen And Halo” in October ’09 I quoted a Decibel where Blickle discussed he and his bandmates’ listening… More »

CMJ ’09: Wednesday In Photos

As far as full-on noon-to-2AM marathon set hunting goes, Wednesday’s spread won’t be topped this year. In addition to bringing us memorable sets from two bands we’ll be watching much more closely in Sleigh Bells and Golden Silvers, the day delivered solid lineups at every turn. I joined photographer Jessica Amaya at ForceField’s day party… More »
