MORE ABOUT SEANA CARMODY
It's been a few years since the world has heard from Seana Carmody. She was known as the sweet vocal center of the experimental noise-pop Swirlies in their early '90s heyday on the Taang! label. Seana led that band to their place as the pre-eminent American purveyor of the Shoegazer sound from that mini-era. In the mid-'90s she founded Syrup USA, and her songwriting blossomed in the realm of that band's keyboard and synth-heavy pop sensibility. Their jingle-jangle fantasy-rock found its perfect expression on the Flydaddy Records release All Over the Land. That vehicle disbanded in 1998. In the four years since Seana took a break from band life but continued writing songs. A few of these captivating ear snippets landed on compilations, including "Crystallized Your World" on Kimchee Records' 1999 In My Living Room. Now Seana re-enters your rock universe in a big way with her dazzling solo album Struts & Shocks.
