Burnside Album Details
Flinn, Sean & The Royal We, The Lost Weekend LP
Sean Flinn formed his band, The Royal We, in 2010 and released his debut, Write Me A Novel soon after. In Buzzine’s review of the record, Andrew Shaw commends the songwriter for producing “as good a debut as anyone could wish to produce” thanks to his “enthusiastic presence and unapologetic blends of swagger and lyrical touch.” The Lost Weekend, their strongest and most telling work to date, is a reflective and unscrupulous rendering of what it feels like to be ambushed by the invisible, a work that explores the tension between what is real and what is remembered. The album draws from musical influences ranging from The Zombies to Bruce Springsteen, creating a rock'n'roll vibe with an ever-present lyrical narrative. Sean Flinn and The Royal We ranked in Paste Magazine’s Ten Oregon Bands You Should Listen To Now, where Luke Larson calls Flinn “a tried-and-true singer/songwriter” who “has picked up his own eclectic style of crafting pop songs along the way…that were as creatively recorded as they were solidly written.
