Summer Years Releases Debut EP “You Can't Live There Forever”: Streaming
- San Diego-based pop-punk band Summer Years, consisting of Nick Lanari (vocals/guitar), Noah Rabe (lead guitar), Mike Liorti (bass) and Isaac Park (drums), released their debut EP “You Can't Live There Forever” along with a new music video for “Small World” on January 7, 2022.
The EP comprises 6-track, produced by Adam Sisco, Chris Szczech and Mike Liorti. The band recorded the EP during COVID-19 pandemic.
Nick Lanari said of the EP, “Moving forward with a project like this was intimidating because there was no clear future set before us, no shows or tours to work towards or any inkling of what the future of the music industry will be like. It was just us in there getting it done with a lot of uncertainty in our future. It was really cathartic at the same time because we felt really fortunate to be able to do what we love during these times and to be able to be creative and expressive is a healing force.”
He continued, “The word perseverance really comes to mind with this EP, and it's really fitting for walking through the last year and a half.”
The video for “Small World” was directed by Josh Yellin-Flaherty, starring John Bubniak and Paige Simons.
Noah Rabe said of the song, “Small World is the first ballad from Summer Years. Nick wrote the lyrics about his home town and the desire to keep the things you love sacred and the same, but knowing that things always change is the best way to value what you have. If it doesn't last forever, when 'it' is happening, that's the time to enjoy it. As for the video we got to enjoy a couple hot August summer days near Joshua Tree filming. We loved the cast and crew we worked with. Everyone was motivated to put together something special, and I think we did just that.”
