“Highland Park’s Seasons really pile on the shimmering keyboards, fuzz-heavy guitars, saturated synths, loads of effects pedals and an occasional beating laptop, accordion or harmonica riffing in the background. Their sound is full and showy, building up to great heights then lilting low into soft, cuddly breakdowns.”

– Wendy Gilmartin (LA WEEKLY)

“This Highland Park based band plays a tender yet voluminous brand of indie rock, combining winding guitar riffs and Colin Meloy-esque vocals with a veritable forest of carefully arranged flourishes. the Synthesizers, keyboards, percussion and violinnever overpower the basic emotional appeal tha runs throughout the newest EP “Winter” instead serving to create a sweetly melancholy atmosphere in which you can easily float away.”

-LOS ANGELES TIMES “BRAND X”

“They Showcase the fine art of Electronic Love.”

– CIRCUIT SWEET BLOG

“Experimental psychedelic rock sprinkled with a bit of electronic music.”

-BEATCRAVE.com

“What Explosions In The Sky would sound like if they were drunk and heartbroken.”

-I GUESS I’M FLOATING

” Seasons played a strong set, and featured a handful of tunes that was catchy, whimsical rock reminiscent of yesteryear. “Real Dreams” was one of my favorite songs of their set. It was an infectious rock ballad with melodic layering like that of the Beach Boys.”

– RADIO FREE SILVERLAKE

” The Highland Park assemblage known as Seasons are a glorious mess.They make lovingly off-kilter neo-psychedelia full of palpable energy and exposed nerves, startlingly pretty one moment and earplug-worthy cacophonous the next. When these guys nail it they are calamitously good. ”

“Highland Park-based five-piece band Seasons, a group that’s been building up quite a following played a stirring set of intricate, meandering pop with some gritty edges.”

-THE 704 BLOG

“Seasons: simple name, not so simple music. There are flashes of brilliance on their new EP, the last track “Homesick Atom” is a confident and well thought out song. The boozy vocals and psychedelic rhythms of this one will keep you interested in what these H.P. kids will do next. ”

– LA RECORD

“Seasons is a band from the Los Angeles area – Highland Park to be precise. Snug in their L.A. scene, they’ve made a great impression on indie fans for their mix of genres from Beach Boy-esque riffs, synth, and folk rock. Winter will win your little indie heart.”

– PERFORMER MAGAZINE

” I don’t know how to describe Seasons except that their music defies easy categorization. I wasn’t prepared for the writing skill and the variety of instrumental arrangements. Some songs were guitar-based, others were piano-based, some even tambourine-heavy. This band definitely goes on my list of locals never to be missed.”

– FEED YOUR HEAD

” Seasons are the hardest band to quantify in Los Angeles. They have the intellectual curiosity, whimsy, and thoughtfulness of aughty indie rock in the vein of The Arcade Fire. I’ve seen them three times and never left feeling anything other than “Jesus. Whoa. I think if The Arcade Fire are too cathartic for you, if you find the Flaming Lips too indulgent (oh, I do), and if you’re really just an indie rock guy at heart but you need something more creatively fullfilling than the Pavement / early R.E.M. formulas, then Seasons might just be the band for you.”

– CLASSICAL GEEK THEATRE

” Seasons opened their set with a lovely tune called “India.” That song was the deal breaker. I knew I was gonna like them when I heard it. They have a wonderfully layered sound that blankets you into a nice warmth and it made me forget how cold and rainy it really was. We live in a music mecca!”

– LOUDVINE.COM

” While I was on autopilot, you were delivering the kind of passionate performances we always hope for. I’ve now got your session videos in heavy rotation on my computer. You play emotionally-charged, rip-your-heart-out rock… but I also like the way you went all Radiohead on us with the mind-bendingly good “Homesick Atom. ” Unlike Thom Yorke’s alien wail, your howls of pain are more authentically human, shrieking “goodbye” to some mysterious being.”

– GROUPEE BLOG

” In the last year, Highland Park’s Seasons has become one of the more ubiquitous bands in the L.A. scene. Their sound is a pure product of their influences, a fusion of indie rock, 80’s synth, folk rock, and garage blues — so if you’re thinking Beck, you’re in the right neighborhood.”

– LA UNDERGROUND

” This band is difficult to classify because the members use every instrument under the sun, but they’re able to bring it all together to put on a great performance. By fans and critics, they’ve been described as a brilliant group with great writing skill and an incredible energy”

– CALIFORNIA STATE POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY

” Seasons took the stage around 10 p.m. Right away I knew this band would not fit into a box or category, which automatically caused me to fall madly in love with their music. Bold, unique, and incredibly smart were my first thoughts as their set progressed. Each song seemed to build off the next, like some sort of beautiful masterpiece. When Seasons’ set came to an end, I felt that only 5 minutes had passed. I wanted more. Immediately, I rushed to my car in search for enough money to purchase an EP. Basically, Seasons is better than good. I suggest everyone catch Seasons as many times as possible. They’re just going to keep getting better, and eventually it will be damn near impossible to get tickets to see them play. ”

– I PROMOTE GOOD BANDS BLOG

“Seasons, from Highland Park, who really nailed it with their earnest, swirling lullabies in the tradition of Mazzy Star. On the roof of the gallery, festival volunteers slumped in the corners clutching pizza boxes and tall boys, while down below wordless choruses and glimmering synthesizers snaked through the trees.”
