Revisiting an angst-fuelled morning following a drunken disagreement, Liverpudlian five-piece Seprona have released their brand new indie-pop single, Phone Me Back. Injecting melodic cues with funked up drums and punky guitars, this single is a glimpse into Seprona’s soulful journey of rock horns and indie riffs. The band spoke with The Fountain about the track as well as some of their favourite venues they are looking forward to performing in.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Phone Me Back?
The reception to the song so far has been boss. It has only been out for a week and we already have a few thousand streams and we were played on Radio X by John Kennedy too, so it’s been really positive already. We are really excited to see where it leads to from here too. It feels like we have been sitting on it for a while so it’s good that everything is starting to happen.
TF: What is the premise to this new single?
The song came from the idea of someone getting drunk and arguing with someone they like over something petty and stupid. Then how they are struggling to deal with all the mixed emotions that go along with that situation. Then the way that they regret it almost immediately after they calm down a little bit. The opening line ‘I hear the silence talk more lately’ is what came first, and kind of set the tone for the rest of the song. It is referring to that moment when you’re sat at home through the week and replaying something over in your mind. I think it’s something everyone can relate to.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
Obviously our plans have been disrupted from last year and we were mid way through a tour when everything closed down, so we definitely feel like we have some unfinished business playing live anyway. So as soon as we can get back out playing shows then we are going to get back to it. We have another few songs lined up ready to go as well. We have just planned to keep releasing new singles one after the other so we can keep trying to build with each new tune, and hopefully keep reaching more people along the way.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
We have spoken about this a few times as a band recently because we are missing it so much. One of our favourite venues to play is a place called Surf Cafe in Tynemouth. It’s a really small place that’s always really busy and everyone there just loves music. It’s really close to the beach and it’s just a really nice place. As well as that every time we go there, we always seem to have a boss time and meet loads of really nice people too. We definitely want to get back there as soon as we can. I think after so long away from playing that we would take anywhere that would have us haha. Getting out to venues all over the country and playing to new audiences is our favourite thing to do though. There is definitely an excitement in the challenge of going to somewhere you’ve never been before and trying to win people over.
