Sego Share New Single “Be Alone”

“Sego’s music is frenetic, agitated and immediate” – NPR Music
“A dreamy rock duo” –Consequence of Sound
“[Sego] transcend the boundaries of genre and era” – Uproxx

Los Angeles duo Sego are releasing a new single “Be Alone” today in advance of their summer North America tour with Vacationer (all tour dates below). The song is a shimmering paean to loneliness – as vocalist Spencer Petersen explains – “We are solitary individuals, and that’s fine. There’s a twisted irony in that loneliness is perhaps the most universally felt emotion, particularly given the amount of social connectivity thrust upon us on a daily basis.”

Sego shared early singles “Whatever Forever” (NPR), “Sucker/Saint” (Uproxx) and “Cigarette Kids” (Consequence of Sound) over the past several months, showing the dynamic range of their fuzzy art-rock sound. The band mix together warped psych rock and indie pop to create something lush and anthemic, bleak pop songs that soar into big hooks and brilliant melodic noise. Opting for a slower tempo and more groove on their newest singles, the band captures the mood of early shoegaze and post-punk, bending them into the cinematic pop Sego have built their reputation on.

BIO:

Sego’s Spencer Petersen and Thomas Carroll were both birthed in the burgeoning Provo, Utah music scene. However, finding inspiration in the dissonance that the towering structures and bustling city offers over the mountains and relative quiet of Provo, both relocated to an old pasta factory in downtown LA. Through various projects together, both founding members uncovered their distinct sound: lazy, grungy guitars with digital overlays and refreshingly honest lyrics. The band’s debut album surprises with angular guitars, complex arrangements and musings from an 80’s kid contemplating the void left from the misguided hope of our youth.
