♫ Annuals – Eyes in the Darkness

The more I read about North Carolina’s Annuals the more praise I encounter. I only have a few tracks kicking around the iTunes but considering that they are all great I don’t know why I haven’t got any full albums. People seem to go nuts for 2008’s Such Fun and now that I’m falling hard for new track, “Eyes In The Darkness,” I think I have some catching up to do. Anyway, “Eyes” is off the forthcoming rarities and B-sides collection, Count The Rings, and once you get past the creepy growled intro it’s all twirling sunshine, handclap-y percussion, and musical happiness. As a bonus, here is my favorite Annuals jam from the archives, an intimate affair that eventually blossoms into a beautifully huge anthem.

    I'm from North Carolina and so have been lucky enough to see Annuals three times live. They're SO so good. Get Such Fun as soon as you can and definitely go to a show if they come through. :) Great post.
