Seafarer To Play The Whistler On Tuesday, November 9th

Chicago’s award-winning bar, The Whistler, has a little bit of everything; an art gallery, cocktails, a record label and live music, and now indie-psych-folk rock quartet, Seafarer. The band will be bringing their unique brand of rock to one of GQ’s “25 Best Cocktail Bars in America” on November 9th. They will be opening for freak-folk act UsUs Calypso.

Seafarer’s goal when playing live is to bring audiences a taste of the spontaneity they experience during practices. They let inspiration flow and bring a dynamic show to the stage. Seafarer has played a variety of Chicago venues, including; Martyr’s, The Red Line Tap, The Elbo Room, Subterranean, The Bottom Lounge, Transistor, The Elastic Arts Foundation, The Darkroom, Ronny’s as well as lofts and other DIY spaces.

Seafarer’s EP, Hiding Places, released locally in May, is being re-released nationally to spread the kaleidoscope of sounds they achieve – rock, folk, psych, pop – to a wider audience. It was recorded Engine Studios in Chicago, with recording engineer Jake Westermann who helped create a cohesive aesthetic for Hiding Places. Patrick Grzelewski (vocals/guitar) says of working with Westermann, “He pushed us without overstepping his bounds, knowing that we were capable of much more.” The EP is full of unique gems, like the mercurial and heady “The Archipelago” and even its ensuing partner, “Functional,” with its psychedelic stomp and open-ended structure, are very simply, vivid proof of a band putting all of their merits to work.
