Portland musical mainstay Sean Flinn has played with a lot of locals, but finally got his own thing together circa 2010. No doubt in a tradition of spacious, out-west roots rock, Sean Flinn and the Royal We are led by Flinn’s subtle, yearning vox, while the band’s delicate touch lets the songs duck and dodge around, making Flinn’s songwriting even less predictable. Think a slightly grittier Lumineers with weathered jean jackets and wide Oregon roads to go drive across and think on.
After a 2011 debut, Write Me A Novel, and a Euro tour around it, Flinn has his previously rotating lineup solidified and ready to roll with their second album, The Lost Weekend, out July 15. But you can stream the whole darn thing now, below. And check out the band’s upcoming tour dates below that.
