If you like Seryn, you’ll love Chambers
Both Denton groups know how to quiet a room.
DENTON The partnership between Denton bands Chambers and Seryn proves that birds of a feather really do flock together. Both groups have a handful of guys and one woman, and each fuse serene harmonies and pillowed acoustics to make music you can truly hear take shape.
While Seryn is busy promoting and releasing new music on the road, Chambers is also doing its share of touring and recording. They’ve shared the stage with Cold War Kids, Grimes, Tennis, and not surprisingly, fellow folkers Seryn. We’ve pulled some of their newest tracks together here, along with a comparable track from Seryn, so you can judge for yourself whether Chambers belongs on your playlist. Click on the blue links to hear each song.
- “Lost Coin” - The use of the violin and textured electronic effects builds a swelling wave that leads right into the choruses. Compare this to Seryn’s “River Song.” Both serene tracks boast well-thought-out bridges and instrumentation.
- “Make it So” - This beautiful track is much like Seryn’s “Beach Song.” Although it’s sung by Chambers’ only female member, Piper Johnson, and “Beach Song” is led by Seryn's Trenton Wheeler, both deliver a natural tenderness.
- “In Your Blood” - The spiritual connection in the music seeps through the echoing lines and sweeping instrumental entrances. This Chambers song utilizes the same percussive pitter patter as Seryn. Compare this to “We Will All Be Changed.”
