Label: Kanine

by Maura Johnston

This Virginia duo's debut could double as a hypercompressed essay on post-punk's shift into indie. The single-string guitar solos on "Running High" and "Disciplinarian" reveal the stinging power of electrified minimalism, while Nicole Yun's multi-tracked yawp, particularly on the galloping "I Know Now" and the shambling "Pogo," creates a wall of wail that recalls the Shop Assistants' best A-sides. Eternal Summers' name belies their aesthetic brevity; even the dreamier tracks, like bedroom lament "World's Away," last only long enough to make their point, leaving you wanting more.
