Self-proclaimed “dream-punk” outfit Eternal Summers originally formed as a two piece in Roanoke, Virginia in 2009. Since then singer/guitarist Nicole Yun and drummer Daniel Cundiff have come to fill out their wall of sound by adding bassist Jonathan Woods, release three full albums on Brooklyn-based Kanine Records, extensively tour the country (often with Raleigh’s The Love Language), and land their name on several festival billings including the 2014 Hopscotch Music Festival which called them “ … covered in distortion and 80’s era effects, creating a tense juxtaposition between sweet and sharp, inviting and cold.”
The band’s most recent album “The Drop Beneath” was released in March 2014 and produced by Doug Gillard, who has worked with bands such as Guided By Voices and Nada Surf. The album earned the band high praise for nearly perfecting their shoegaze style being, which Pitchfork called “a balance between whisper and roar, messiness and finesse, between articulating Heavenly-style twee bedroom musings versus whipping up walls of roiling melodic noise.”
Eternal Summers will bring their unique brand of fuzz pop to headline Cat’s Cradle on Feb. 14 for the most rock and roll Valentine’s Day you have yet to experience.
