Straight from the banks of the Mersey come the five-piece indie rock band Seprona. Hailing from the early days of school, the band has proved they’re thick as thieves and can stand the test of time. Hotly tipped for 2021, the band of friends consists of Daniel Badger (Vocals/Guitar), Louis Birchall (Guitar), Niall Blanchflower (Synths/Keyboards), Chris Woods (Bass), and Adam Maher (Drums).
The band has culminated a successful fan base, following from a string of support slots for the likes of Blossoms, The Fratellis, and The Coral. They have since sold out a home headline show on their 2020 tour which was full of fiery performances and energising atmospheres.
The release of their eponymous EP in 2018 propelled them onto the scene and since they’ve released a handful of delightful singles, their most recent being ‘Phone Me Back’.
The track sees them look back at an angst-filled, alcohol-fuelled morning after a high-energy drunken squabble that had occurred the night before.
“The opening line ‘I hear the silence talk more lately,’ is referring to sitting at home through the week and replaying it over in your mind and thinking about how embarrassed you are about the way you acted and how you’re going to change in the future. Conversations everybody has had with themselves at some point after doing stupid things on a night out!”
Layered soundscapes married with rich harmonies make for a sensational combination that acts as the sturdy backbone for this track. Straight out of Blossoms’ playbook, the song is backed by playful keys and vibrant drums, topped by soulful vocals injected with colour-pop vibes that the band has utilised masterfully. The funky basslines offer a hit of punk to the otherwise indie tilting track – adding further dimensions and sonically enhancing Seprona’s latest feat.
Just over three minutes, ‘Phone Me Back’ is essential for any summer playlist and is sure to propel them into further stardom. Here’s to hoping we see their name pop up on a few of Autumn’s rescheduled festival line-ups.
