ANOTHER SIDE OF THE SEAMS
Bright janglepop with dreamy pop overtones on this Canadian band's gorgeous second album.The Seams' jangly pop is full of lovely melodic twists and elegant turns-of-phrases delineating the quotidian details of love and romance.THE SEAMS blend influences of potent, straight-forward guitar bands from the 60's - 90's. With their unabashed love of structure and melody, their collective strengths shine through the songs they create.Their second album Another Side of the Seams is a raw introduction to their electric side. The songs bring to mind a young REM or Real Estate. The bands core songwriting duo of Kyle Connolly (WISH, Fake Palms) and Jonathan Rogers (Elsa) have departed from the reverb soaked melancholy of their previous projects and have immersed themselves in a brighter beat.
