TELECOM Share New Video, “Ramon”
Brooklyn-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sean McVerry has launched his new project and band, TELECOM. McVerry, who has previously worked with big names in the music industry such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ Karen O, Danger Mouse, and AURORA, among others, is ready to make a name for himself with this new project.
TELECOM’s sound is an interesting blend of 60s brit-pop with hints of late 2000’s NY indie grit and cheeky theatrics. The band’s debut single, “Ramon,” which was co-produced and mixed by former DFA engineer Abe Seiferth (Nation Of Language, Guerilla Toss) at Transmitter Park studios in Brooklyn, marks the first of two tracks to be shared for the project.
McVerry wrote and roughly produced “Ramon” and its upcoming counterpart in his home studio in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, in late 2020. The songs were initially inspired by the isolated situation brought on by the pandemic. Both tracks sat dormant for a while until McVerry worked on them with fellow collaborators Zeno Pittarelli and Darryl Rahn during a writing retreat in 2021. At this point, the album and concept for TELECOM began to take shape.
McVerry worked with Seiferth to refine the rough and ready bedroom recordings into retro future classics. Both “Ramon” and its upcoming counterpart were written and recorded by McVerry, with additional production and mixing from Seiferth, additional production and mastering from Pittarelli, and artwork from Molly Styslinger.
TELECOM’s debut single “Ramon” is available now via Better Company Records, and fans can expect more music from the band in the future.
