RE Seraphin just recently released the Swingshift EP, but the world doesn’t stop once you drop a release; you’ve got to tour and promote and tweet and all that jazz. So, today, we’ve got a new video for the single “Stuck in Reno,” bringing in a mixture of jangle and twang…surely a nod to Seraphin’s time spent down in Texas (right?!). This song has a nice little backing vocal track that really raises the bar on the melody, giving a soothing charm to the groove. If you’re into what you hear, its available in 12″ and Cassette formats via Mt. St. Mtn./Dandy Boy/Tear Jerk/Safe Suburban Home. Also, be sure to catch the band running up the West Coast in mid-July with Tony Jay!
Long ago, RE Seraphin was a powerhouse Austin musician, but feeling the call, he moved out to the San Francisco area, where he’s been fortunate to polish up his stomping power pop sounds. We’re stoked to point you in the direction of the new Swingshift EP, which is dropping late this month via Dandy Boy/Mt. St. Mtn/Safe Suburban Homes. This is an interesting effort, featuring the constant drum stomp that serves as the song’s foundation. From there, the tune hangs on an almost garage vibe, though you can’t help but feel the Bay Area pop goodness shining through there, particularly as the song moves into the chorus, which wouldn’t seem too far out of line on a Papercuts LP. Stoked for R.E and company; the EP drops on May 27th.
