The Best Performer of All at This Year's SXSW? Seryn, If You Ask Paste.
Says the magazine's editor, Josh Jackson, in his take on the band's show: "[Their] majestic swells make it feel like you're watching Arcade Fire before their first album." High praise, indeed.
But, then again, maybe it's not altogether surprising coming from a magazine that's been openly in love with this band since hearing its debut release.
So maybe we should go by another person's take on the show. How about this one: "It was so awesome!" Then again, that, too, should be taken with a grain of salt -- it was Seryn guitarist Nathan Allen's take on the show when we ran into him later in the day and asked him how the show went.
Maybe it's best you judge the show for yourself: We found some footage of the band's performance, shot by someone named Colleen Hennessey, on Vimeo just now, and have posted it after the jump for your viewing pleasure. The audio leaves a little to be desired, but at least you'll be able to get the idea.
