24-01-2013 // Album: Seryn - This Is Where We Are

Tomorrow it’ll be 2 years ago since this album was released, but I’ve just discovered it 4 weeks ago. That is one of the amazing things of music (and most other art forms), no matter how new or old something is: if it’s good, it’s good. And this 2011-release by Seryn is good. Very good!

Seryn is a 6-piece band from Texas and combines several layers of guitars, banjo and ukulele with great harmonies and rhythmic changes. Making every song a surprise, without ever falling into the same routine. Some songs are more slow and dreamy, others are up-tempo, but the amazing harmony of their combined voices is something that stands out in all the 10 songs on this high quality debut album.

This 2011 album that I discovered on the break of 2012 is without a doubt my 1st fine pick of 2013. A beautiful, addictive album that is best enjoyed over and over again. Their calendar is filled with a lot of US-shows for the coming 2 months, hopefully a new release is also in the works. I’ll definitely keep my eye out for it.

Great. Fucking. Record.
