First Listen Review: Serafyn – “Quantum Leap”


Genre: Indie Folk

The Good: Take Dry The River’s really early work before they added electric guitars and drums then replace the singer with some Swiss women and you have this band. They have that element of folk that sounds rustic, like they are singing about love tales from millennia ago, mixed in with Bible metaphors that lack any religious tendencies but are instead good poetic elements. This band throws in all the necessary folk instruments of violin and soft drum next to acoustic guitar. They pull off melodies as catchy as Mumford or Of Monsters and Men, but keep the indie part of them. I would say this band is close to Kings of Convenience than any contemporary folk. It’s not as grand and loud, but sounds like small town engineers of meaningful songs.

The Bad: Nothing to complain

Would I Listen Again: Definitely
