This album is a love letter to summertime. To youth. To friendship. To recklessness. To freedom. To time. To adventure. To swimming pools. To boundless fun. To late nights, and even later mornings. To hope. To love, whether lasting or not, whether past, present or future. To music. To the sun. And, at last, to moving on, when summer ends.
"Summer" is the first of four seasonal EPs and marks the recording debut of Nick + Noah, a pop duo consisting of Nick Frenay and Noah Kellman. Longtime friends and musical partners, this is their first official collaboration.
