Sego / Big Black Delta Share New Split Single, Quid Pro Quo Via Under The Radar | “Into The Night” / “Shame” Out Now On All DSP’s | Sego Sucks LP Out Now Via Roll Call Records

LISTEN & SHARE: Sego – Quid Pro Quo

“Both tracks pivot between a sense of claustrophobia and vastness, creating a composite work from different artists.”
-Under The Radar
“Sego Sucks tackles self-loathing, fake personas, escape, substance abuse, economic anxieties and other various personal hang-ups, and it’s all swathed in tuneful blankets of frisky rock riffs and warm-hearted melodies.”
– Paste
“Los Angeles-based quartet Sego creates boisterous, hook-driven indie rock reminiscent of Beck or Phoenix in the early 2000s.”
– NPR
riddled with musical quirks and kinks that call to mind Beck’s zanier tendencies. The bass provides a pounding pattern akin to a heart on the verge of bursting, which the song eventually does during its climactic, jarring, but wholly enrapturing chorus…with an anthemic track of this magnitude, festival bookers would be smart to snatch them up for the summer season.” 
– Consequence Of Sound

Sego and tourmates Big Black Delta have returned with their split single, where they each covered a track from each other’s catalog. Quid Pro Quo was premiered and received raves from Under The Radar, “The single features Sego’s groovy, sauntering take on their tourmates’ song “Into the Night” on the A side, with Big Black Delta’s cover of Sego’s “Shame,” a creeping, soulful ballad with affected baritone vocals that builds into a cascading hook, on the B-side.

On the tracks Sego frontman Spencer says, “Covering a song written by a friend tends to carry a different weight than just choosing something from the canon. I suppose there is a depth in knowing that someone real (in your life) made something important to you. Toward the end of our tour opening for Big Black Delta, we started covering “Into The Night” from their set. We ran the risk of annoying them since they played it right after us, but fortunately they have a good sense of humor. So I wanted to run an experiment and cover each other on the same release. I like how the permutations create an alternate reality while also tipping the hat.”

In addition to the release of the double single Sego is performing at Treefort Music Fest and other US dates. More information is below.

Sego’s LP Sego Sucks is out now via Roll Call Records. Last year, they were featured on, NPR’s All Songs ConsideredBillboardConsequence Of SoundUnder The Radar, and more. The band’s album title originates from what started out as a hashtag from some disgruntled audience member, ‘Sego Sucks’ ended up encapsulating the ethos behind this entire record.
