Seryn is a 5 piece band who calls Denton, Texas their home. The scene in Denton is bustling, and Seryn merged right into it ! When listening to the well layered textures of guitars, ukulele, accordion, bass, viola, banjo and various percussion, it's hard to imagine This Is Where We Are is the band's debut effort. The band's strength resides in their musical talent and the understanding of dynamics. Their beauty is gracefully displayed through chilling harmonies. Each member and their voice carry equal importance. One is not complete without the other.

It is in this craft that the young band shines so bright. It has earned them a sound that isn't easily defined, but still proven triumphant. What may first appear as straight folk songs, later transcend into noisy walls of sound, or almost film score sound scapes. The term "Folk-Pop" has been thrown around and maybe it loosely fits, but we will leave the definitions up to you.

The Denton Record-Chronicle said "Seryn's set was so dynamic that you could feel the key changes in your feet, through Festival Hall’s concrete floor!". While the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported about the same performance, "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." You can see where this is going...

This is Where We Are was produced by Britton Beisenherz (Ramble Creek), and recorded over the course of a few months. The experience felt at their live show seems to be captured well in these recordings, which was something of great importance to the band. The band has also created their own buzz in the most traditional way too by winning people over at their shows. It's not often that a band without a record out is able to play so many great bills and sold out shows. Much less, be nominated for awards such as Best Folk Artist, and Song of the Year (Dallas Observer). There is no shortage of regional press on them, but the band is excited to take their sound, their show, and their new record on the road. They will be traveling all over the US in the coming months. Go see them play and you will be sucked in!


Press
----------------
"Beautiful arrangements (both in instrumentation and in vocal harmonies) and an epic, "big sky" sound that, at times, seems more fitting washing over dilapidated wooden pews in an old church than the usual torn-up couches, vinyl booths and barstools of area venues." - Dallas Observer

Like ice-cold water on a hot day, their music is crisp and refreshing, and I cannot get enough. The imagery packed into their set is unreal. It’s like listening to the soundtra ck of a great love story, breathtaking drama, and a dark tragedy all rolled into one over-the-top, unparalleled performance. - My Denton Music

" Seryn is fast becoming a must-see. One of Denton’s hottest bands in any genre...on the verge of big things." - Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Editors Pick
For having such a subtle and subdued psych-folk sound, Seryn sure is making a giant splash on the indie music scene these days. This quintet from Denton, Texas is a talented group of multi-instrumentalists who trade-off on violins, cellos, guitars, banjos, ukuleles, accordions, pump organs, bells, and… bird chirps and bear roars! Their Americana-pop tunes are plaintive without being brooding, lilting without being sentimental, whispered and ghostly without losing punch, and catchy as can be, as evidenced on the song “We Will All Be Changed” which was recently featured by Paste Magazine. Rich and resonant vocal harmonies stretch over the carefully-crafted and restrained interplay of acoustic instruments. Across the album, rustic ballads are balanced with rollicking stompers. Fans of Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons, and Fleet Foxes will love Seryn, as they balance jauntiness with an aesthetic that is heartbreaking, human, haunted, but utterly alive.
