L.A duo Sego have announced UK and EU tour dates, including The Great Escape, Dot to Dot, and a special London date at Dalston’s Servant Jazz Quarters. The band, who’s critically acclaimed slacker-indie-pop debut album will be released in the UK on May 6th, have also shared a brand new remix of radio hit, ‘The Fringe’.
The Fringe centres around lead-singer Spencer’s observations of today’s technologically stimulated culture – written from the perspective of someone who doesn’t own a smart phone. “Los Angeles has particularly cold concert/party habits.” says Spencer. “The movie Swingers illustrated this idea very well back in 1996. It used to be my favourite film before living here. It’s funny how nothing much has changed in 20 years except the fact that everyone has a phone to keep them company so they don’t even have to pretend to be interested.”
The 13 track album will be released via Raygun Music in the UK, and Sego collaborated with visual artist Gustavo Torres aka Kidmograph to create visual loops to accompany each of their songs.
“A warm and spirited skip through an all-new world of hazy guitars and embracing storytelling, it sees Sego finding comfort in the worn-out Converse of Mac DeMarco, Darwin Deez and their similarly slack pop pals.” DIY
