Serkeidian, The Balance Review
Serkeidian is a five-piece rock band based in Jersey, Channel Islands. Serkeidian’s sound blends alt-rock influences with a 60’s edge and just a hint of pop. The band has been refining their craft as songwriters, and after compiling seven songs they headed into the studio with Jersey producer Wilson Nash to cut their first EP titled, The Balance. With a nice mix of songs that are energetic, guitar driven and contain solid vocal harmonies, the band also pulls in catchy pop elements with keyboards and synths and spot on choruses. Serkeidian is: Marcus Harley (lead vocals); Matt McManus (guitar, vocals); Alex Pitt (guitar, vocals); Piotr Kobus (bass guitar); Leon Bouhaire (drums). Together they harken to what was best about 80s rock bands, unmistakable guitar chops and unequivocal frontman. Serkeidian nails it, with a modern and updated approach. That’s the short of it!
