Eternal Summers at the Summit
The prevailing trend in indie rock these last two years - or at least among the indie rock championed by the internet's critical hive mind - has been chillwave, a movement toward music that sounds like faded photographs of childhood coastal getaways.
It started with synth-pop acts like Washed Out and Neon Indian, but even rock bands like Beach Fossils have opted for hazy, half-remembered sonics.
You would think a band called Eternal Summers would play into that pattern, and indeed Nicole Yun and Daniel Cundiff describe their duo as "dream-punk." Yet if these Roanoke rockers are delving into the subconscious, it's a fully lucid experience. Debut "Silver" is as crisp and clean as it is cool and comfortable.
Folks who find Best Coast too cute ought to have a listen Tuesday at The Summit.
8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 2
