As kids, SUMMER SALT knew what they were running toward. Now, they’re ready to ruminate on what they’ve left behind. In a way, the trop-pop duo – singer/guitarist Matthew Terry and drummer Eugene Chung – have been building to their brand-new album, SEQUOIA MOON, ever since jettisoning their Dallas, Texas, hometown for the arts-and-culture oasis of Austin after graduating high school in the early 2010s. The band quickly rose through the ranks of the local Austin scene with their 2014 debut Driving To Hawaii, teeming with both the escapism and recklessness of youth and the composure and charm of ‘60s-era pop, doo wop and bossa nova.

It’s like smiling with a fat lip or winking with a black eye or laughing with a set ofbruised ribs. The spirit of perseverance, finding some semblance of happiness after taking a mental/spiritual/literalbeating. This theme throughout Keep On Truckin’: from the album’s title to “Life’s A Joke” (“Nothing’s going my waytoday, but it’s okay”) to the closer, “Cheap Glue,” a mid-tempo song that sees Dani vow to do “anything to help youfind a solution” to a friend’s broken heart.” – HOLLYWOOD LIFE.
