Los Angeles-via-Utah two-piece Sego have just revealed plans to deliver their debut LP Once Was Lost Now Just Hanging Around, and Exclaim! has got your exclusive first listen to a brand new song off the forthcoming effort.
The record follows up a pair of EPs from the band and is due out on March 4 through Dine Alone.
Propelled by an electro-punk sound that has drawn comparisons to LCD Soundsystem, the duo of Spencer Petersen and Tom Carroll still consider staple indie rock like Beck and Pavement among their influences and stick to classic instrumentation when they're playing live. As you might have guessed given the name of their wordily titled album, Sego's explosive sound is matched with plenty of lyrical wordplay and stream-of-consciousness musings.
The first sonic sampling arrives with album opener "Obscene Dream." Spacey synths, frenetic percussion and distorted shout-singing come together in the instant party-starting anthem. It's been paired with a visualization that adds an extra level of trippy fun, courtesy of artist Gustavo Torres.
