Noise Pop 2020 Festival: Michael Seyer
Sun 3/1/20 @ 7:00 PM PT
Japanese city pop, Brazilian boogie, and the songs his parents sang karaoke to, these influences help make Michael Seyer one of the most unique artists creating music in the indie-pop space today. On his new EP Nostalgia the 24-year-old songwriter, born in the Philippines but raised in Gardena, a suburb of Los Angeles, set out to create songs that were both fresh and timeless. Michael Seyer developed his songwriting in the SoCal bedroom pop scene. Now, working with Caroline, Seyer looked to his past for inspiration. The six-track EP bears the unmistakable hallmarks of classic pop from the 60’s and 70’s – the kinds of songs that strove to find a perfect balance between emotion and technique.
