Nylon, Refinery 29, Pitchfork Premiere Eternal Summers (@EternalSummers) Songs
Virginia band Eternal Summers has a new single called “Keep Me Away”…. and not-so-shockingly, we can’t stay away. The dreamy vocals have us in a daze thinking of sun-soaked beaches, fire pit sing-a-longs, and all the other things about summertime we miss so desperately when it’s freezing outside.
Listening to anything else until the snow starts to melt and our coats are far in the back of our closets seems downright crazy.
Their new album, The Drop Beneath, will be available March 4th from Kanine Records. Mark your calendar now, because it’s full of even more soft-spoken vocals and cyclic bass lines, combined to form an ode to endless summers.
Listen below to “Keep Me Away” and try not to play it again, we dare you.

|Winter blues, it’s time you met Eternal Summers. This trio has got that NorCal vibe to chill you out while lifting you higher. Their latest album, The Drop Beneath, plays like an ode to the days of cruisin’ along the coastline, windows down, one arm hanging out. Life, in their world, is good.
The Drop Beneath doesn’t drop until March 4, but we’ve got the title track for y’all to vibe out to in the meantime. Nicole Yun, Eternal Summers’ vocalist, told Refinery29 that “the title track of the album, ‘The Drop Beneath’, serves as a thesis statement for us as musicians — a call to step out of our own artistic barriers and literally take the plunge.” And, plunge it does. The guitar melody floats above a driving bass line and syncs so naturally with Yun’s vocals that it feels like we’ve stumbled upon live jam session rather than a polished track. Which, at the end of it all, is completely refreshing. Here’s a band that’s in it for the tunes and delivers a solid jam that’s beautifully rough.

Eternal Summers – “A Burial”
“Gouge”, the first single from Virginia trio Eternal Summers‘ forthcoming The Drop Beneath, found the band taking a darker turn away from the jangly sound of 2012’s Correct Behavior; new The Drop Beneath cut “A Burial” certainly has a dark title, but the band instead indulges their more anthemic side, and the results are solid. The Drop Beneath is out March 4 via Kanine.
