While The Seams aren’t reinventing the genre wheel, I can’t wait for the release of their debut record, Spanish American. Here’s just another taste of what’s to come along with a small track description from front-man Jonathan Lullo.
“Stay” is the first song I wrote after DTEA broke up. I did a little writing with a friend in Los Angeles (Kevin Ridel) while writing for DTEA’s second record, and it completely changed the way I approached songwriting. I kept the different tricks he had taught me in mind while writing this track, and I feel like it helped set the tone for the kind of songs I wanted to do with The Seams. Also, while it’s a fleeting moment, it’s the first track where I got to bust out my remedial slide guitar skills.
