"Get Utterly Lost in Summering's Electrifying Debut" GoldFlakePaint (album review) / by trish klein

Difference is sometimes what makes the difference. Add to that some cosmic synchronicity and you’ve got the makings of something really special.

Vancouver’s Summering began as a favour: the story goes that five musicians (all involved in other bands at the time) did a solid for a friend who needed a support act for a one-off show. According to later interviews the reaction to that first gig, a back yard rent money party in downtown east end Vancouver was amazing. Despite this delicate nascence, Summering carried on and have become a band that embraces the tension of its diverse influences.
