We review the new single from Serotones – Nothing’s What It Seems

York based five-piece Serotones last week returned with their latest single, Nothing’s What It Seems’. The release of the new single follows on from the success of last summer’s ‘This Won’t Last Forever’, which allowed the band to reach new heights.

‘Nothing’s What It Seems’ portrays a relatable situation of the uncertainty of people’s feelings, being aware that everything can change at any given moment, through haunting, yet beautiful, vocals that gather around massive instrumentation that is propelled by its unique drum beats and guitar lines. As a whole, the track strives to take its listener on a journey through a feeling of calm, that bubbles and bursts into overwhelming exhilaration.

Serotones are a band that are no strangers to the music scene, having already secured plays from the likes of Radio X, RTE 2 FM, and also Soccer AM. A whirlwind year in 2021 saw the band become an integral, stand-out part of This Feeling’s charity single, ‘All Together Now’, which saw the band join forces with the likes of Jamie Webster, The Lathums, Zuzu, Red Rum Club, and many others to produce a single which raised funds for the well-loved charity, the Music Venue Trust.

After selling out a hometown show at the Victoria Vaults in less than 24 hours, and having the pleasure of supporting Jamie Webster at his headline show in Leeds last December, Serotones have made a real name for themselves within the gig circuit. Now the band are preparing to head out on the road once more for This Feeling’s Alive tour, and their Rewired tour, early in April.

‘Nothing’s What It Seems’ is a track that is destined to become a fan-favourite at Serotones’ shows, the track shows a high level of musicianship and proves the band’s ability to produce high quality, relatable songs that continue to add to their already strong back catalogue.
