Sometimes you hear a great record from a band you love and wonder, "where are they gonna go from here?" And sometimes you worry. And sometimes your worrying is meaningless because not only does this band that you love pull it off again, but they reveal new depth and vibrancy that make you want to crank their music up even louder and dance around the house.  With Eternal Summers' The Drop Beneath there is no need to worry.

Roanoke, Virginia based Nicole Yun, Daniel Cundiff, and Jonathan Woods separate themselves from the genres and comparisons of 2012's Correct Behavior throughout The Drop Beneath. No longer is the band still learning how best to cause chaos, rather Eternal Summers is now pushing their music to new limits with no fear of repercussions or of fitting in.

With production by Doug Gillard (Guided By Voices, Nada Surf) and mixing by Louie Lino (Nada Surf), The Drop Beneath brings out the bands 90's influences such as the early guitar pop days of Radiohead, Blur, Teenage Fanclub, Lush and the early alt-rock of Foo Fighters.  The band met Gillard while touring with Nada Surf, which is howThe Drop Beneath took shape. "We had been talking about having a producer that would be more hands on and work in the studio, more closely with the band. [Meeting Doug] was the genesis of everything leading up to the album." It also led the band to record in Austin. "We escaped the end of winter and spent time in the warmer weather down South.  We wouldn't be bothered in Austin and could focus like we wanted. There was a cave close by and we would go in there to be in total blackness."

Stepping out of the blackness resulted in songs like "Gouge" and "Never Enough," which showcase the upbeat jangly pop the band is known for, "A Burial," a powerful alt-rock monster best heard pumping through your car stereo while the sweetness of "Keep My Away" suggests the influences of 90's Brit Pop balladry. The Drop Beneath out March 4th (Kanine Records) offers a range of songs more mature and catchier than ever.
