Haunted Summer crafts languid pop music, adorned with orchestral strings and electronic textures that recall Soft Bulletin-era Flaming Lips.-Candice Aman (KXSC Radio)

The pair's blend of experimental guitar riffs, ethereal orchestral features, and Moody's trance-like vocals-plus a ton of oddball electronic sounds that add even more texture-creates a sound that sticks with you. -The Seattle Weekly (Azaria Podplesky)

Bridgette Eliza Moody and John Seasons are the group's mainstays, but they have smartly added other musicians to the mix, taking their music to a bolder, higher level. The use of clarinet especially enhances and grounds their sound as Moody's augmented vocals and Seasons' languid guitar licks add ethereal layers. -The Inlander (Laura Johnson)

Haunted Summer features Bridgette Moody and John Seasons, who share songwriting and performing duties in a true collaboration. The result is a very pretty, psychedelic sound with ethereal vocals from Bridgette, who comes into her own as a lead vocalist. -Julia Stoller

(The Boston Music Survival Guide)

The music definitely fulfills the definition of dream pop. The lyrical content relies heavily on longing for and reveling in young love.This is a young band with a high ceiling, I would not be surprised if these songs break out nationally. The title track ends with "No one will love you when you are loved" however this band has love to spare, and I except big things coming their way. -Scott Schultz (LA Record)

"It's like falling asleep in a bathtub of cough syrup." - Wayne Jessup

(The Owl Mag)

"Just two days after the release of their eerily-named EP, Something In The Water, dream pop duo, Haunted Summer, will make the room echo and whirl to the tune of their supernatural anthems, already quite a hit amongst fellow Angelenos" -Cynthia Orgel (Santa Cruz's Good

Times Weekly)

Haunted Summer is a band whose music eerily fits their name perfectly. Angelic, other-worldly vocals lead the way and give life to a beautiful dream-pop inspired sound. -Glen Casebeer (Northwest Music

Scene)

Together, the Highland Park coed duo makes digi-folk pop that's as enticing as it is spooky. Like an echo in a cave, Moody's voice carries an eerie yet seductive vibe over soothing strums or gentle beats. This is the sound of dew forming on a chilly morning-Dan

Frazier (Free Bike Valet blog)

Over the first couple months as Haunted Summer, Seasons and Moody wrote a flurry of songs, recording at home and then enlisting friends to play the music live, first around LA and then on tour in support of Polyphonic Spree, Islands and Taken By Trees. - Eric Swedlund (Tucson

Weekly)

Haunted Summer, lives up to its name with an even more enchanting series of dream-pop shimmers, as Bridgette Eliza Moody's vocals trail off languidly in the jet stream of husband John Seasons' majestic emissions. -Falling James (LA Weekly)

Their brand of dream pop feels timeless, with just the right amount of youthful nostalgia to woo your ears into submission. Moody's smooth, light as air vocals captivate like a siren of the sea, while the arrangements are lush and seductive, but never pushy. It's a delightful combination that has the power to fill any lazy summer day with an extra bit of magic. -Jacqueline Caruso (The Deli Magazine LA)

There's no question that whatever is haunting Moody and Seasons is steering the duo toward a beautiful place. -Kevin Bronson (Buzzbands LA)

Windswept vocals, sultry strings and spacey guitar blend together beautifully. The whole thing is mysterious and engrossing enough that it gets under your skin and stirs your own private nostalgia. -Billy Gil (Amoeba Blog)

Haunted Summer is John Seasons & Bridgette Moody. Together they are heading in directions they couldn't pursue in their former bands, making eerie psychedelic orchestral pop.-Kathryn Pinto (Radio Free Silver Lake)

Haunted Summer's "Something in the Water", is full of hazy chamber-psych that unfolds in slo-mo, providing plenty of room for Bridgette's nostalgic croon. It's a likeable sound, as evidenced by the inordinate number of press clippings the band has posted to its Tumblr. -The Portland Mercury (Ben Salmon)

The sexy, head trip music of Bridgette Moody and John Seasons seems to take shape somewhere in the space between your ears. They feed you all their hypnotic sounds and leave your brain and senses to figure it out. -Brad Roberts (Feed Your Head Blog)

Their brand of synth-y mid-tempo dream pop along with Moody's ethereal vocals weave through whimsical melodies with twinkly resonance. -Melody Stone (Capital Public Radio)

On Something in the Water, gentle, hazy vocals take the forefront, gliding along on clouds of delicate synth and simple, nostalgic melodies. Just when the whole thing is about to float off untethered into the ether, though, come gentle rolls of surf guitar and sudden sweeps of strings that keep things grounded in a wall of intricately-woven electronic sounds. Despite its gentle ease, there's still something kind of eery about the way the harmonies seem to linger in the air for a moment, even after a song ends. - Kaitie Todd (Willamette Weekly)

Haunted Summer consists of Bridgette Eliza Moody and John Seasons, reigning from the Los Angeles area. The group crafts ethereal, dream pop that comes off haunting live -Shane Jackson (DTLV MUSIC)

Haunted Summer play mostly mid-tempo, textual music that is heavy on the guitar effects and synthesized sounds. Moody's voice is a powerful, emotive tool that plays soft, sweet contrast to the hints of darkness below. It makes for an eerie, soft-at-the-edges psychedelia. - Joshua Tehee (The Fresno Bee)
