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 throughthe songs they create. Their first album Meet The Seams is a raw introduction to their electric side. Drawing heavily from 60’s AM radio to 80’s college rock and 90’s britpop, thesongs bring to mind a young REM or GBV, even Oasis at their most brash. 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. With the addition of Jesse Mirsky (Elsa) and Simone TB (Fake Palms, The Highest Order), The Seams have developed their song writing through a thoughtful and hook-laden sound. Recorded by Josh Korody (Beliefs, Dilly Dally, Cousins, F*****d Up), the clarity of their debut album showcases the band’s intent… songs will always prevail!

Meet The Seams debut album released digitally and on limited cassette Oct 28th via Hand Drawn Dracula.

“a sunny guitar-driven melody – Real Estate with less whimsy” – STEREOGUM

“NEW & NOTEABLE: Jangle pop just like REM used to make from a Toronto indie supergroup” – BANDCAMP.COM

“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

“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

“The Best of 2017 – The Seams “Lemonade” / Big City, Small World” – CBC RADIO 1

“sweet new standalone single called “Lemonade” – offers a sunny guitar-driven melody and self-effacing lyrics; think Real Estate with less whimsy” – STEREOGUM
