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 overlay… 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 »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

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 – “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… 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… 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. 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… 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… 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'… More »
