Los Angeles via Utah art punk band Sego released a new single today, called “Sucker/Saint” in preparation for their headlining show at The Echo in LA tomorrow.
“[Sego] have uprooted from a lifestyle of quiet and mountains to a large and daunting city, two completely opposite environments, but carried the music with them nonetheless. Perhaps it is this dichotomy that makes Sego’s music so exciting.” –The Wild Honey Pie
Sego’s Spencer Petersen and Thomas Carroll were birthed in the burgeoning Provo, Utah music scene. Finding inspiration in the dissonance that a bustling city offers over the mountains and quiet of Provo, they relocated to downtown LA to pursue music, playing in various projects together before forming Sego. The two discovered a distinct sound, combining lazy, grungy guitars with digital overlays and refreshingly honest lyrics, and have worked with labels such as Kitsuné and Dine Alone to release their previous material, including their debut full-length, 2015’s Once Lost Now Just Hanging Around.
Earlier this fall, Sego released the track “Whatever Forever” in preparation for a full US tour supporting El Ten Eleven. “Whatever Forever” received high praise from Vulture, KCRW and Indie Shuffle among other places. Sego will headline at The Echo in Los Angeles tomorrow, and play select dates on the West Coast this fall, including a stint opening for OK GO in November (all tour dates below).
