A careful combination of wandering melodies, with dollar-store theatrics yield the body work that artist and composer Sean McVerry creates. At his core, his crooning sensibilities lay on top a bed of warbling synthesizers, florid keyboard arrangements, and a relentless groove. His lyrical vernacular is earnest and at times hectic, dancing along the bar lines creating a musical palette brimming with potential energy.
The Brooklyn-based artist has lent his musical vocabulary in various corners of the industry from Hip Hop production for artists such as J.I.D. and Princess Nokia, to playing with Danger Mouse, Karen O and AURORA. He has released two EP’s and a handful of singles to positive critical review from publications such as Mic.com, Impose, and Paste Magazine.
From his debut Hourglass Switchboard I and II, Sean has explored the sonic palettes reminiscent of bands such as Grizzly Bear and LCD Soundsystem, to his new wave fever dream Private Lives which explored the neon synth pulses of Tears for Fears and Duran Duran. He is a humble student of music and a product of his ever-changing environment. His debut full length “Death of The Golden Boy” was released September 18th 2020 via AntiFragile Music.
