Label: New West
NEW WEST RECORDS POWER SERATONES Produced by Bradley Shultz of Cage The Elephant, the album stands as Seratones’ follow-up to their 2016 debut Get Gone. The debut garnered the band critical acclaim, and they intend to take the nuances of Get Gone and perpetuate them into a bigger, more genre-bending sound on Power.
Focusing on their powerhouse of a frontwoman A.J. Haynes, the album delves into “her years fighting for reproductive rights and serving as a counselor at one of Louisiana’s last remaining abortion providers, her advocacy for racial equality, her struggles to adapt and overcome, her love of poetry, and much more,” according to a press release.
“We went through a pretty dramatic shift with this record,” says Haynes in a statement. “The band lineup, the creative process, the sound: all of it changed in ways that really reflected our growth and evolution.”
The lead single “Gotta Get To Know Ya” is a high-energy, in-your-face blend of rock, funk, R&B, soul and a certain sound that is all too unique to Seratones. Including a fun and fresh music video, Seratones don’t seem to be holding anything back with their new era of music.
