Eternal Summers' new album and tour
Eternal Summers 4th studio album, Gold and Stone is out next week. This week, it’s streaming over at the New York Times Press Play, “Eternal Summers just sounds better when the sun is out. The hazy, bleached guitar textures and the floating melodies on this trio’s fourth album are readymade for the car trip to the beach this June.”
The band was also just named an “Artist You Need To Know” by Rolling Stone, “Sun-drenched, shimmery crush-pop with hooks to spare. Eternal Summers burrow deeper into feedback-drenched guitars and just-sweet-enough vocals, displaying a newfound urgency.”
Gold and Stone, out June 2nd on Kanine Records, is available for pre-order now. Eternal Summers is touring in support of this album, shows starting this week. Check out the full list of dates here.
