HEAR THIS: Haunted Summer
Haunted Summer is the LA duo of Bridgette Eliza Moody and James Seasons, and “All Around” is their calling card. The dreamy single works a woozy vibe to maximum effect, and the hazy soft focus video was shot on location at Bronson Caves, (yes-the Batcave from the TV show…and right underneath the Hollywood sign).
The song builds, subsiding quickly, and you’re left clutching at it like a half-remembered dream. It’s back to the top and hit it again. The highest compliment this Owl can give is to plagiarize his own comment on Beach House’s Teen Dream: “It’s like falling asleep in a bathtub of cough syrup.” Keep an eye out for Haunted Summer’s forthcoming EP, Something In The Water.
