Music Video Of The Day: Dead Stars' 'Summer Bummer'

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 17, 2014 10:30PM

Dead Stars' debut LP Slumber is out today and to celebrate the band released a video for one of the album tracks, "Summer Bummer." We loved the earlier EPs that came out of this Brooklyn trio and the full-length offering from the band continues to impress. Hazy melodies and a guitar heavy attack create the perfect soundtrack for either summer or winter, since the songs seem to pull equally at the strings of sunshine and melancholy.

The video, and the song, below are an excellent example of those forces in play. Catch the band when they play The Empty Bottle on July 2. We'll be there!

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact us at
