Prior to going to the Catalyst Conference a few weeks ago, I had not heard of this band.
After going to the Catalyst Conference a few weeks ago, I can’t stop listening to this band.
Seryn is from Denton, a mythical land in Texas that Matt Chandler says “hello” to often at the start of sermons. They remind me a little of Mumford & Sons. Each member of the band can play approximately 17 instruments proficiently. Seriously, during their set, the drummer would stand up, grab a guitar play that, then walk over to some sort of instrument I’ve never seen in my life and then absolutely kill that too. It was amazing, and they played with that kind of unabashed joy and gusto I’ve written about before. Someday, I hope to throw an event and invite them to be the music.
Here’s one of their songs. It breaks in a big, beautiful wave at the 2:15 mark. I’m a huge fan of Seryn. (Which I think is Greek for “We play an amazing amount of instruments well.”)
