Southern California indie rock band Ariel View have shared an animated lyric video for “Summertime,” off their upcoming Epitaph debut Until My Lungs Are Cleared to be released October 18. The track offers up an anthem built on bouncy beats, airy harmonies, and self-possessed lyrics.
Ariel View has also announced their album release show, which will take place October 17 at The Bootleg in Los Angeles. Archer Oh, It's Butter, and Ear Ringers will open the show. Ticket information, here.
Growing up in the suburbs of Ontario, CA sisters Harmonie and Heaven Martinez have been playing music before they could walk and songwriting since middle school. It was when the two brought a few friends into the equation that they formed what is now a rock band they call Ariel View.
On Until My Lungs Are Cleared, produced by Joe Reinhart (Hop Along, Remo Drive), Ariel View channel the most complex and messy emotions into 11 immaculately arranged indie-rock songs. Lyrically, the band share stories of drinking too much and missing the wrong people and dreaming of running thousands of miles away. Influenced by garage, surf, psych rock, emo, and pop punk, Ariel View make music you can dance to, party to, sing along to, or maybe even cry to if that strikes the mood.
October 17 @ The Bootleg (Los Angeles, CA)
