The breadth of Seaslak’s sound is broad enough that it could take me days to cover every inch. There’s just so much to cover to adequately describe what it’s like seeing Seaslak live in concert.
To begin, I could talk about the bands chemistry. From their siren calls disguised as harmonies to how no single person’s sound competes with another, working as a single unit to create an all familiar yet distinct Americana sound.
And while all of that is truly wonderful and puts them on a whole other level that most bands could only hope to ever achieve, there’s only one thing I really want to talk about, which is lead singer Mick Rudolph's voice. It is a voice that demands attention. When he started singing, it was was like the Voice from Dune. Everyone, even the chattiest of Cathys, quieted down and turned to see the source that demanded their respect. All of this is even more impressive when after two songs, he disclosed that while taking the stage a rogue mic had popped him in the mouth and had given him a significant bloody lip.
It's criminal that Seaslak doesn't have any music released yet, so if you have a chance to go see them play live, then you have to go.
Lastly, before I let you go on your merry way, I must mention that this band has to be one of the more attractive bands overall that Utah has to offer, which is really saying something.
