Roger Sellers “Waves”

roger_sellers-wavesMan, this tune really caught me off-guard.  I didn’t expect to be as into it as I am, but it conspired with the change in weather over the weekend to hit me in that sweet spot.  Austin’s Roger Sellers sounds confident on “Waves.”  There’s an air permeating the entirety of the lush, catchy tune (it should be noted Sellers plays literally everything here) from the looping piano backbone to the whimsical leads and especially Sellers’ vocals.  Something familiar hangs in the background of the song, too – it’s like I’ve heard this before in a distant memory, somewhere I can’t place.  It all combines impeccably, leaving me anxious for the rest of Sellers’ new record, Primitives (Out on September 30th via Punctum).
