Eternal Summers, “A Burial”

Virginia-based Eternal Summers' latest record, The Drop Beneath, surprised fans with a darker sensibility than what they may have been expecting, based on 2012's jangle-poppy Correct Behavior. "A Burial", one of the singles off the new album, leads with its ominous title, but still works in the band's penchant for chiming guitars. The video for the track tells a suburban drug tale, too choppy to glean an exact narrative, but with enough exposition to make us feel the protagonist's inner conflict as a wholesome high school athlete by day, and coke dealer by night. The contrast between his words is deeply felt in both the visuals, and in singer Nicole Yun's easy-going vocals. The Drop Beneath is available now from Kanine Records.
