The Shreveport, La., quartet Seratones mixes Southern soul with garage rock swagger on their debut album, "Get Gone." Fronted by the powerful singer A.J. Haynes, the band earned a spot on Paste Magazine's "20 Best New Bands of 2015" list.

More from OpenAir Sessions:

The band stopped into the CPR Performance Studio prior to a show at Denver's Fillmore Auditorium with St. Paul & the Broken Bones. They performed three songs from "Get Gone" and spoke with Jeremy Petersen about the multitude of genres the band incorporates, the music scene in their hometown of Shreveport and adjusting to life as a touring band.

Stream the session and watch the band perform "Don't Need It" above. Read interview highlights and watch more video below.

Singer and guitarist A.J. Haynes on the writing process for 'Get Gone':

"It was a first thought, best thought kind of mindset. That was kind of our mantra at the time. It just came together that way and evolved."

Haynes on being called a 'gospel in the garage' band:

"The ironic thing is we've never played in a garage before. It's too damn hot in Louisiana to be in a garage!"

Songs performed:

  • "Don't Need It"
  • "Tide"
  • "Chandelier"
