Sea Patterns came in to Mobtown last spring to record with Mat Leffler-Schulman. Self-described as “kind of noise pop stuff like a punk arguing with a smiths fan”. And that they are. Serious punk roots, but Kevin Wenger their singer/guitarist and primary songwriter still knows how to write a super melodic progression.
This record was recorded and mixed in a marathon three days. There is something to be said for efficient recording. There’s an energy to this record that would not be possible if all the details were nitpicked and smoothed out to perfection.
Play Date is out on 12″ vinyl as well as bandcamp.
