Summer Salt Announce New LP “Sequoia Moon,” Share Video for First Single “Monday’s Fácil”

The Phil Ek–produced record arrives June 25 via Cherry Lime Records.

We’re just about to the point in the year where it’s imperative to inject some tropic vibes into our daily listening diets, and Austin-based duo Summer Salt have delivered the goods just in time. Matthew Terry and Eugene Chung are announcing their new, Phil Ek–produced LP Sequoia Moon will be released at the end of June along with the reveal of the track’s first single, the breezy and utterly carefree “Monday’s Fácil.”

“‘Monday’s Fácil’ is a song that essentially embraces the ‘get busy living’ attitude,” Terry explains of the tune. “I heard a song by Os Mutantes called ‘Panis Et Circenses,’ where I thought the words were ‘Monday Fácil.’ When I looked up the lyrics, this was not at all what they were saying, but still the lyric hit me and made me smile. I decided then that I wanted to make my own tune called ‘Monday’s Fácil,’ or at least use that lyric somewhere. Euji and I just fell in love with the breezy vibe of the song that we definitely wanted to include it on the album. The older we get we’re trying really hard to stay in the moment and stay present. Appreciate each day. A new day, a Monday. Make it easy on ourselves, heading into the week with a leap!”

The video that arrives with the track clearly embodies this new philosophy, with the duo goofing off in front of a digital camera, seemingly unbothered by the calendar reading the American work force’s (and an unemployed cartoon cat’s) least favorite day of the week.
