LISTEN & SHARE: Sego – ‘Sego Sucks’ LP


“At first blush, the 1997 country pop smash seems like an odd fit for the off-kilter rockers of Sego. But the band quickly makes the song its own with funky-as-hell bass riff, skittering guitars and winking vocal performances. Wellbaum replicates the sweet tones of Cole’s voice well, playing off the more eccentric inclinations of Sego. On paper, this cover seems to make no sense, and yet, when you hear it, it all suddenly makes perfect sense.”
– The 405“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“The track itself is a wheezy power pop track ornamented with a contorting guitar line and a sense of playful dejection.”
– Under The Radar

“Los Angeles-based quartet Sego creates boisterous, hook-driven indie rock reminiscent of Beck or Phoenix in the early 2000s.”

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 have shared a new track “Yah” (Kendrick Lamar cover) feat. Vacationer.
