Following last month's release of “Oldest Daughter," The Wonder Years share another new single today in "Summer Clothes." This time, the Philadelphia band gets wrapped up in gauzy nostalgia, calling to mind similar mid-tempo moments of reflection in their own discography like No Closer To Heaven's "You In January" or Sister Cities' "It Must Get Lonely."
Vocalist Dan Campbell explains: "it's a love letter to a time when your sadness was most conspicuous by its momentary absence, when the low hum quieted enough for you to realize it was nearly gone, when you did stupid, dangerous shit because, well, why not?"
Written during a farmhouse writing session the band precautiously put together in the winter of 2020, "Summer Clothes" took its final form the following summer in the studio with Grammy-nominated producer and engineer Will Yip. Both this song and "Oldest Daughter" will appear on a forthcoming new full-length due from the band later this year.
