“NEW & NOTEABLE: Jangle pop just like REM used to make from a Toronto indie supergroup” – DAILY BANDCAMP
“Members of Toronto indie bands Fake Palms, Elsa, and U.S. Girls have converged to create The Seams, a jangle-psyche supergroup in the tradition of Real Estate and nascent Britpop – indulge in the jolly restlessness of their self-titled single The Seams” – THE FADER
“think 60s pop, think Paisley Underground, think early R.E.M., The Go-Betweens or even those initial Creation Records 45s” – CLASH
“The Seams make the kind of ringing guitar pop you would hear a lot on college radio in the ’80s – More nerdy comparisons: Shack, The dB’s or, to bring it back to Canada, Grapes of Wrath” – BROOKLYN VEGAN
“a dazzling, endlessly endearing collection of indie-pop gems” – GOLD FLAKE PAINT
“The Seams play wistful, pretty indie rock, reminiscent of everything from mid-’60s rock ‘n’ roll to the foreboding energy of Slint – a cool, care-free breeze of guitars and silky vocals” – CLRVYNT
“CBC Radio3’s Featured New Artist – combining elements of the Paisley Underground with English jangle-pop sensibilities – The Seams channels a rosier shade of winter, leaning on more upbeat songwriting and a penchant for melody” – CBC RADIO 3
“5 things every Canadian indie music fan needs to hear this month – take a note from the book of The Seams” – CBC RADIO 3
“Best New Indie 6 Songs You Need To Hear This Week – Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Flaming Lips, Madlib, MF Doom, Passion Pit, The Seams, Why? : The Seams have no shortage of talent composing their 60s-esque pop that manages to be both fun and lethargic” – INDIE 88 88.1FM
The Seams are Kyle Connolly (WISH, Fake Palms), Jonathan Rogers (Elsa), Jesse Mirsky (Elsa), and Simone TB (Darlene Shrugg).
Recorded by Josh Korody (Beliefs, Dilly Dally, Cousins, F*****d Up) and Candle Recording in Toronto.
