Seryn is going on the road to celebrate the February 17th release of their new album "Shadow Shows".On Friday February 27th they will hit the Good Records stage at 7pm to entertain and delight. Come on out to this FREE show and welcome Seryn and absorb their intoxicating blend of sounds. "The long-awaited follow-up to Seryn's debut, This Is Where We Are, will be independently released on February 17, 2015. The new album, Shadow Shows, was recorded in Denton, TX at Redwood Studio with engineer/producer/drummer McKenzie Smith(Sarah Jaffe, St. Vincent, Sondre Lerche, Regina Spektor, Midlake). Thesound on Shadow Shows expands upon the folk-rock vibe showcased on the group’s debut, This Is Where We Are, by introducing more of a progressive-rock feel and energy to the new album." Since the release of This Is Where We Are in 2011, Seryn has undergone a multitude of changes,including a move from Denton to Nashville, as well as changes in lineup, label, and management. While these obstacles challenged the group's staying power, they ultimately strengthened the core focus and direction of Seryn. The strong reception to Seryn's debut album was showcased by enthusiastic support from both local and national publications.NPR’s All Songs Considered included Seryn in its ‘Bands That Should Be Bigger’ feature, and PASTE Magazine ranked the group in its ‘Best Bands of 2011.’While the Fort Worth Star-­Telegram reported, "Watching Seryn perform, it's hard to convince yourself that those crystalline, multi-part harmonies are not pre-recorded or some kind of sleight of ear." Originally formed in Denton, TX, the group made the collective decision to call Nashville home and moved in October of 2014.The move came shortly after two new members had been added,Jordan Rochefort and Scarlett Deering. Both Jordan and Scarlett made the move with no hesitation, cementing the cohesive, all in attitude that reflects Seryn’s goals as a group. The blend of voices and instrumentation heard throughout Seryn's first two albums creates a progressive-­‐folk sound that isn't easily defined, but still accessible to casual listeners. What may first appear as straight folk songs later transcends into a cascading wall of sound. Over the past few years Seryn has been privileged to share the stage with incredible musicians including Twin Forks, The Head & The Heart, Polyphonic Spree, and The Walkmen. Looking ahead, the band will release Shadow Shows and continue to tour the U.S.
