Eternal Summers - Gold And Stone
If you haven't heard of Eternal Summers, you'll have a lot of catching up to do. The Roanoke, Virginia based indie rock trio release their fourth full-length album 'Gold and Stone' on their longtime label, Brooklyn based indie, Kanine Records. Having formed in 2009, Eternal Summers has now been operating as the trio of Nicole Yun, Daniel Cundiff and Jonathan Woods longer then they did as a duo without Jonathan. Gone are the days of the Roanoke based collective known as the Magic Twig Community that saw the handful of like-minded indie artists working together; but what has grown in its place is a band that stands firmly on its own. With several previous releases, there has already been a lot said about Eternal Summers music. From the crafty minimalism on their debut 'Silver', to the dream punk sheen on 2012's breakout 'Correct Behavior', to the guitar driven power on 'The Drop Beneath', the evolution of Eternal Summers marks a band that embraces both anthemic rock and bittersweet ballads- a band that is grounded in jangle pop but with an added depth that rewards on repeated listens.
