“Whiteout” the debut single from the upcoming album “Here Comes Nothing” by Summer Colds. This song was originally written when I was playing in my old band Black Bears Fire but never ended up on a record because it didn’t fit the style of music I was playing at the time. When I formed Summer Colds this was one of the first songs that inspired the new sound. I was listening to a lot of 90’s rock from bands like Weezer and Jimmy Eat World, a lot of Pop Punk from that time and getting really into the new wave of music that was bringing back the nostalgia for the era with a new twist on the sound like White Reaper, Surfer Blood, Waves ect. I self recorded the song and crammed as many guitar layers into the track as I could muster. I also played bass, drums and vocals along with the backup harmonies.
This is the first single from our upcoming debut album “Here Comes Nothing”. I felt like this song encapsulated the overall vibe of the record.
Our first single “Whiteout” was released on 4/19. The second single “Killing Flies” is set to release on 5/17. We are getting ready to release our debut album. “Here Comes Nothing” will be available on streaming platforms and CD on 5/31. 'We are planning on shooting our first music video this summer while we wait for the vinyl pressing. Our release party will be at Brickroom in Ashland, OR sometime in July or August.
