NOTHING’S WHAT IT SEEMS
The York based five piece band consists of Duke Witter on vocals, Sonny Leach on Guitar, Sam Lambert on Guitar, Joe Adams on Bass and Tom Elliott on drums.
Serotones are no strangers to the music scene having a brace of hits secured under their belt already, and having received previous airplay on the likes of Radio X, RTE 2 FM and Soccer AM,
Previous accolades for the band include appearing in the Scotts Menswear Xmas Live showcase with This Feeling, as well as appearing for the new music giants on their dedicated stage at both Gathering Sounds and the Isle of Wight Festival last year. They were also part of the This Feeling Alive tour with The Chase, Coco and The Lost and The Lilacs in Nov/Dec.
Serotones were further an integral part of This Feeling’s charity single ‘All Together Now’. The track first made famous by The Farm was re-recorded by This Feeling in conjunction with Scott’s Menswear and Modern Sky with other contributing artists including Jamie Webster, Rats, Shambolics, The Lathums, The Lottery Winners, The K’s, Zuzu, Rianne Downey, Red Rum Club, Cobain Jones and Fitzroy Holt all raising funds for The Music Venue Trust.
Gig wise, despite the obvious restrictions and lockdowns the band managed to sell out a hometown gig at the Victoria Vaults in under 24 hours and in December had the pleasure of supporting Jamie Webster at his headline gig in Leeds.
After what can only be described as a whirlwind year in turbulent times, we are now thrilled that Serotones are back with their latest offering in the single ‘Nothing’s What It Seems’.
‘Nothing’s What It Seems’ is hauntingly beautiful with strumming guitars and melodic, harmonious vocals in the opening bars that belie the crashing drums and electrifying guitars that burst in with the rousing chorus lines “Nothings what it seems, coz ill never see what you see, oh but your bursting at the seams for me, and I’ll never dream how you dream”
It’s a track that ebbs and flows in masterful brilliance taking the listener on a journey. Every emotion is portrayed and demonstrated in the lyrics and musicianship of this powerful track. From feelings of intense calmness to full throttle blood rushing through your veins in exhilaration, this track ticks all the boxes!
‘Nothing’s What It Seems’ was recorded at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire and was produced and mixed by Joe Sage.
Lead singer Duke has said of the new track:
“Nothing What it Seems’ is a song about not feeling content and feelings constantly changing. Today everything is exactly how it needs to be and yet somehow, tomorrow it can all change.”
‘Nothing’s What It Seems’ received its first ever world wide exclusive spin on the John Kennedy X-Posure show on Radio X on Saturday 12th March when it was picked as John’s ‘Hot One’ of the week and it will be featured on Soccer AM tomorrow morning (19th March)
