Seryn is a 5 piece band who calls Denton, Texas their home. The scene in Denton is bustling, and Seryn merged right into it ! When listening to the well layered textures of guitars, ukulele, accordion, bass, viola, banjo and various percussion, its hard to imagine This Is Where We Are is the bands debut effort. The bands strength resides in their musical talent and the understanding of dynamics. Their beauty is gracefully displayed through chilling harmonies. Each member and their voice carry equal importance. One is not complete without the other.
It is in this craft that the young band shines so bright. It has earned them a sound that isnt easily defined, but still proven triumphant. What may first appear as straight folk songs, later transcend into noisy walls of sound, or almost film score sound scapes. The term "Folk-Pop" has been thrown around and maybe it loosely fits, but we will leave the definitions up to you.
The Denton Record-Chronicle said "Seryns set was so dynamic that you could feel the key changes in your feet, through Festival Hallâ€™s concrete floor!". While the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported about the same performance, "Watching Seryn perform, its hard to convince yourself that those crystalline, multi-part harmonies are not pre-recorded or some kind of sleight of ear." You can see where this is going...
This is Where We Are was produced by Britton Beisenherz (Ramble Creek), and recorded over the course of a few months. The experience felt at their live show seems to be captured well in these recordings, which was something of great importance to the band. The band has also created their own buzz in the most traditional way too by winning people over at their shows. Its not often that a band without a record out is able to play so many great bills and sold out shows. Much less, be nominated for awards such as Best Folk Artist, and Song of the Year (Dallas Observer). There is no shortage of regional press on them, but the band is excited to take their sound, their show, and their new record on the road. T hey will be traveling all over the US in the coming months. Go see them play and you will be sucked in!
