This week we discussed growing up in the Bay Area, being in a rock ‘n’ roll band, and why all the band members have a motorcycle except Jason. This episode was recorded on July 22nd, 2020 – Stefan Aronen was in Portland and TREASVRE was in San Francisco.
TREASVRE is a band of five San Francisco Bay Area natives that blends elements of post-rock and shoegaze with rich synth textures, heavy guitar riffs, and electronic rhythms. Vocalists Samantha Peña and Sabrina Simonton create wistful harmonies that underscore the themes of nostalgia, melancholy, and hopefulness found in their lyrics. The drama and depth conveyed by the music creates a distinctly cinematic quality — one that captures the complex range of human emotion in beautiful and inspiring ways and begs to be experienced live.
The first of four new releases coming this year, Devils / Echoes EP wrestles with heavy themes that are especially pertinent during these times of social isolation. Through poignant and haunting imagery, these two songs examine how loneliness and self-doubt can take control, as well as the struggle to break free without losing oneself. TREASVRE’s thoughtful take on these complex emotions are backed up by
driving guitars, saturated synths, and groovy rhythms, creating a mood and energy that is hard to overlook.
