Although there isn’t much information on the Blogspot curated by Eternal Summers, a post put up on April 25th says everything you need to know about the band in only five words (and a lot of exclamation points). “One of my fave songs!!!”
The video posted underneath was a live video for Grinding Halt by The Cure, and as soon as Eternal Summers broke into their first song Wednesday night at the Drake it was clear that they wear their influences on their sleeves.
Hailing from Roanoke Virginia, Eternal Summers took this sound and ran with it. Borrowing from The Cure’s trademark flanged guitar tone, but speeding it up to a cheetah’s pace. Their set was relentlessly energetic from start to finish, and even with a new touring bass player, they didn’t miss a beat.
Although the majority of people in attendance may have been there for other bands, Eternal Summers certainly managed to steal a few fans. If the lineup for vinyl after their set was any indication, this may not be the last time we see them make a stop in Toronto.
