Members of Toronto indie bands Fake Palms, Elsa, and U.S. Girls have converged to create The Seams, a jangle-psyche supergroup in the tradition of Real Estate and nascent Britpop. Before the band releases its debut album Meet The Seams on October 28, you can indulge in the jolly restlessness of their self-titled single below.
“This song is a pretty good representation of the album we recorded," said Jonathan Rogers, the band's co-songwriter along with Kyle Connolly, in an email to The FADER. "I was feeling pretty torn and frayed at the time. The lyrics revolve around the anxiety that comes from spending too much time with someone, staying up too late and not getting anything done that you need to. The sentiment is that when you finally walk away, things will still be ok.”
