Summer Salt – Austin, Texas – indie rock
Based in Austin, TX, Summer Salt blends vibrant yet breezy vocal harmony and colorful elements of 1960s pop, Bossa Nova and jazz.
The group was originally formed around the talents of Matthew Terry (vocalist/guitarist) and Eugene Chung (drummer) during their senior year of high school.
The infectiously melodic ensemble has cultivated a loyal following with their endless summer, ocean dream music that can be heard in influences such as the Lovin’ Spoonful, Donovan, Frankie Valli, the lovely Lady Day or other musical genres of 1960s Rocksteady or African Highlife. Moving forward, with the anticipation of their forthcoming release Honeyweed, Summer Salt maintains phonetic components of Brazilian tropicalia and 60’s folk pop while drawing inspiration from seasoned topics of loss and renewal.
Summer Salt’s building success on the road lead to a 31-date sold out North American tour in the Summer of 2018. Featuring the recent addition of guitarist/vocalist, Anthony Barnett, and bassist, Elliot Edmonds, the group is now preparing to embark on their second headlining US tour with wonderful and humble support of Motel Radio and Dante Elephante. The tour kicks off with a homecoming show in Dallas, TX on July 13th and concludes full circle in El Paso, TX on Aug. 18.

Check out the band’s new single ‘Honeyweed’ . The track which is off of their upcoming EP Full Catastrophe, features jangly guitars, sun-soaked melodies and warm vocals. The band reveal, “Honeyweed to us started to mean this little glimpse of hope. Something unexpected. Life throws you unexpected curve balls in times when you need it the most”.
