SEGO – “20 Years Tall” & “Wicket Youth”

This the guy on the lefts whole arm isn’t visible so  I’m going to go ahead and assume this is a selfie and SEGO has crazy wingspan.

“Wicket Youth” is the 2nd song and title of the upcoming EP release from LA based SEGO. If you trust Kitsuné like many of us do, then you’ll be excited to know they will be the ones releasing it. Moments heureux!

In a interview with We Found New Music, SEGO were asked to describe their first release, “20 Years Tall.” They proclaimed the track to be “a stumbling of words… with a phrenetic beat” that “winds in and out of autobiographical content.”  In addition to those descriptions I would add that there’s a certain laissez faire attitude that wicks from “20 Years Tall.”

“20 Years Tall,” the song that directed my attention to the band is sung in an almost spoken-word-Hold Steady-meets-Beck-esque voice and endeared itself a soon as it made me smile. The smile came exactly when the Utah to LA band sung, “blah, blah, blah, blah, blah” and shortly after announced, “Guitars,” right when the song broke for a guitar solo.

I’ll end this post with the way they end 20 Years, “Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, roll credits.”
