Seasaw Preview

Author: Tyler Dallman   Seasaw is set to hit the High Noon Saloon this Friday, June 26th! The show will sparkle, featuring electronics and eclecticism, audibly and visually. The band is known for their striking visual components in the form of glittering outfits and shimmering visual art– and the music reflects it, combining traditional indie rock sounds with odd instruments and synthesizers.

The indie rock duo, comprised of Eve Wilczewski and Meg Golz has found themselves breaking waves and sounds both locally and nationally ever since the creation of their most recent self-released full length, Big Dogs, in September of 2018. The album saw the duo moving further away from the Violin and Banjo of their debut and further into the land of likes of autoharp and sample pads, expanding on the synthesizer work from their sophomore album Too Much of a Good Thing. However, even though the base of the sound has changed, one element has remained constant: their vocal harmonies. The duo are the best of friends and it shows in their singing, the two are always in sync and perfectly in tune with each other, crafting beautiful layers often only found in a studio.

I got a chance to talk to Eve and Meg about some of their history and most recent album at WSUM back in April earlier this year. Their history is long and storied, but the basis is that they’ve been friends for years, both close distance and long, and now that they’re both living in Madison the band is better than ever. They told me Big Dogs is a long time coming, and is a statement and a challenge to parts of the music industry. After touring extensively and being the recipients of sexism (particularly remarks about not being able to keep up with the “big dogs”), the duo needed to release a lot of energy and this album is the result of that. And the results are certainly full of energy.

Opening up the High Noon on Friday are other Madison natives Madison Malone and Paper Holland. Doors at 7:30, music at 8:30.
