Cause A Scene has been on a bit of a blogging hiatus lately as I’ve been planning out a spring calendar of house shows for 2013 and taking some time to reflect on our first year (more on that next week). There are a lot of things I’m really excited to see in 2013, and one of the biggest things I’m keeping my eye on is the sophomore release from Seryn, out sometime in the first half of this year. If you’re new to Cause A Scene, then you should know that Seryn is the band that started it all for Cause A Scene, setting everything into motion with our first house show back in the Fall of 2011.
Over the holidays, our favorite Dentonites (Dentonians?) released a live video of their brand new song “Ivory Black”. In typical Seryn form, the song takes the listener through several movements, ebbing and flowing in tempo with equal parts tenderness and raw emotional energy. “Ivory Black” displays some of the richest harmonies I’ve heard from this band so far with some finely intricate guitar work from lead guitarist Nathan Allen. In short, it stands as one of my very favorite Seryn songs overall and has me even more excited about what is to come from this band in 2013 and beyond.
