Eerie Summer

Feeling nostalgic for 2010? Get right on Eerie Summer’s 7(!) track 7-inch because it belongs next to Best Coast’s Sun Was High (So Was I) and It’ll Come Around by All Saints Day.

Everything drags just right, like slow motion footage of a couple breaking up. The sound may go even back further to Ultra Vivid Scene’s art rock and Mazzy Star’s spectral atmosphere and the Marine Girls’ whispered intimacy.

Wherever it comes from [St Petersburg, literally] please don’t call it shoegaze, because then I really don’t know what that genre means. Let’s just call it a modern classic, seven times over.
