“We are all so much together, but we are all dying of loneliness.”
— Albert Schweitzer
It turns out even art-punks get the blues. The new single from Sego — the band built around the creative partnership of Utah natives Spencer Petersen and Thomas Carroll — is “Be Alone,” a break from the mostly frenetic music on their albums and EPs. It’s a song for staring out the window on a long train ride.
“We are solitary individuals, and that’s fine,” Petersen says. “There’s a twisted irony in that loneliness is perhaps the most universally felt emotion, particularly given the amount of social connectivity thrust upon us on a daily basis.”
