2006 saw six 19-year-old North Carolinians release Be He Me, which in our mind was one of the best albums of that year. They followed up with Such Fun in 2008. This saw the band furthering their already expansive sound which some people found comparative to that of Arcade Fire. In early 2010, Annuals released Sweet Sister – a 5 track, 19 minute self-produced EP that was a natural progression of their previous two LP releases. The Annuals are now set to release Count The Rings, a collection of various band favourites and B-sides that up until now were un-released outside of the USA.
Dust off the deck chairs and slap on your sunnies as you bask in the warmth of ‘Eyes In The Darkness.’
