Seratones – “Chandelier”

Seratones’ recent debut album Get Gone is chock full of pure, rampaging, unapologetic sound, with influence ranging everywhere from Prince to T.S. Eliot’s “The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock” (which is, I must say, one of my favorite poems). On the Louisiana band’s single “Chandelier” – perhaps the best track off the new album – you can hear bits of soul mixed with pieces of crunchy rock, and you can even catch a few waves of garage punk in the instrumentals. However, it is lead singer and guitarist A.J. Haynes’ crystal clear, gorgeously mercurial voice that makes the track that much more extraordinary – especially in the chorus, where it goes from tough to soft, then right back to tough in one wonderful loop.
