Virginia's Eternal Summers are back with their first album in three years, titled Every Day It Feels Like I’m Dying, which will be out May 4 via Nevado Music. The new record marks a somewhat new direction for the band, at least on the first single "Forever Mine," that is more purely pop than the muscular indie rock we knew on Gold and Stone or Correct Behavior. With jazzy chording, it's more in line with early Phoenix or The Cardigans. Singer/guitarist Nicole Yun agrees:

The combination of straightforward love lyrics and synth based sugary pop is a new realm for the band. This was the last song to come together on the album, and proved to be a really enjoyable experiment into new sounds and styles. It was so fun and pressure free to record a song like this that we all almost wrote it off like a joke or a song we could keep for our own amusement. I'm glad it made it to the record. People need some joy and fun these days.

"Forever Mine" premieres in this post and you can listen below.

Eternal Summers have a couple East Coast shows this month with Prism Tats, including Brooklyn's Alphaville on March 31 which is also with Canada's Tough Age (tickets). They've also got a few Midwest shows in May. All dates are listed below.
