Bearing raw emotions of jealousy, loneliness and fear, Perth’s Segers delivers an edgy slice of indie-rock with her latest single, Call Out Loud. This intriguing juxtaposition of sweet melody and bitter emotion creates a lulling mood that is at once both uplifting and melancholic – highlighting the power that comes from pairing a carefully crafted song with a natural, uninhibited voice.
Co-written and produced by Eskimo Joe’s Joel Quartermain, Call Out Loud is a humble song that rises to greatness. There is no wall of guitar, no symphonic orchestra… just simple hooks layered so as to rise and fall with Seger’s effortlessly beautiful voice. The end result speaks for itself – a song you can’t help but want to play over and over again.
Following on from her charming single The Wandering, Call Out Loud quite naturally finds Segers stepping into her own as a singer and songwriter. As a talented multi-instrumentalist, there is a broad spectrum of ideas that Segers can execute with fluidity and ease – apparent at every twist and turn of the deliciously catchy Call Out Loud. Within a handful of minutes, Call Out Loud displays everything this exciting new voice has to share… and the boundless potential that lays in front of her.
Segers’ debut EP Little Lines forged the path that she is now on – introducing the world to a musical force of equal parts talent and humility. Part of the new generation of Australian artists who brandish both the skill and determination to earn their place in the public consciousness, Segers has the potential to be a true breakthrough – bridging the gap between honest rock songwriting and big radio-friendly pop hooks. Call Out Loud brings her one step closer to this monumental achievement.
