Spring Summer Shares New Single/Video Ft. James Iha (The Smashing Pumpkins) “Show Yourself Out,” New LP ‘T.E.A.R.S’ Out 7/15
Spring Summer, the musical moniker of San Francisco-based artist Jennifer Furches, today shared her soaring, infinitely catchy new single “Show Yourself Out”—co-written and produced by James Iha (The Smashing Pumpkins), who also played guitar and additional instrumentation on the track. “The song came from learning about a helpline The New York Times had set up for exhausted parents during the pandemic,” explains Furches. “I listened to some of the calls and they were so desperate—mostly mothers but some fathers, wailing in this primal way—and I channeled some of that feeling into the song.” She has also shared an accompanying video, directed by Fernando Cardenas and featuring a cameo by Iha. “I moved to LA in my early twenties and have so many memories of driving through the hills with a car full of friends, windows open, searching for the next fun place to go. It’s a life so removed from where I am now, but that freedom you feel with the wind in your hair, back in a familiar place, never really goes away. (Is that why so many mid-life crises culminate in a convertible purchase?),” Furches says. “In some ways this record is an ode to that time, so driving around the Hollywood hills with my old friend Fernando—in the car of my old friend Tennessee—felt like a proper tribute.”

The Regrettes Debut New Music Video For Latest Single “Barely On My Mind”
Today, The Regrettes share their new music video for “Barely On My Mind,” directed by Claire Vogel. The video was recorded on the streets of Brooklyn ahead of their sold-out Irving Plaza show during the Further Joy headlining tour. Vogel reveals, “for ‘Barely On My Mind’ we wanted to find a creative way to show what someone is saying isn’t always what’s on their mind. And sometimes, no matter how hard we try, our thoughts take over reason. The band was in New York on tour, and we had four hours to film before their show – battling unseasonably cold weather and intense winds. The crew included a dog, and everyone had a good time.” Watch the music video for “Barely On My Mind” here.
