PRESENTED BY William Reed
Meet THE END OF SUMMER, a rock and roll four-piece from UCLA whose blazing songs stare you straight in the face and don't look away until they come crashing to a close. Being that their driving yet ethereal sound is indebted to everyone from Bruce Springsteen and Arcade Fire to Tame Impala and Ty Segall, it is no surprise that the band's energetic shows deliver a unique and diverse listening experience. One moment, they conjure up a storm of blistering garage rock fury. Soon after, you may find yourself floating suspended in waves of psychedelic ambient guitar sound. Moments later, you are bouncing to Beatles-esque pop fit for a sunset in the park. Echoed vocals, sweet mellotrons, fuzzy guitars, and pummeling drums combine to create THE END OF SUMMER's powerful rock and roll. All the while, your inner ear is gleefully taking in melodies and hooks galore, while singer/songwriter/guitarist Braeden Henderson's heart-on-sleeve-sincere lyrics evoke grand, picturesque stories from under the Californian sun. The primary topic of discussion here is loss—of innocence, of youth, of love, of life; to listen to THE END OF SUMMER's shimmery, swirling musical textures and blackly honest lyrics is to engage with the deep dissatisfaction that goes hand-in-hand with the impermanence of existence. But, like all loss, the bleakness is bittersweet, accompanied by the glory of a remembrance of what was once great. THE END OF SUMMER's music grieves for the past, but dances in the moonlight of that beautiful nostalgia; a celebratory funeral for everything we'll never see again.
