Strange Weather is the experimental-pop project of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sean Brennan. In their bones, the songs are timeless classics, embodied as romantic psychedelia – cinematic daydreams with echoes of Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, and Esquivel.
Born outside Baltimore, Brennan began composing for chamber ensembles in his teens. After studying poetry at college, he began working at a studio in his hometown, producing music for television, radio, and theatre. In 2011, he relocated to Brooklyn where he currently lives with his wife. Brennan has been diagnosed with a rare genetic eye disease called Choroideremia, and he is gradually going blind.
After a few years of accelerated vision loss, in summer 2014 Brennan moved to the beach near Assateague Island, Maryland, where he built a studio and began work on a full length album, Suspending Disbelief. The first single, “Coaccidents”, was released in May 2019, and won First Prize in the Great American Songwriting Contest.
In 2017, “Little Bit of Light” was used by GEICO in their Motorcycle campaign. Strange Weather has expanded into a rotating cast of characters that includes Callie Brennan, Davis Rowan, Paul Peglar, Sarah Mount, Matt Tobin, Slark Moan, Dan Drohan, Meia Noite, Yula Beeri, and Avram Fefer.
“Tidal Wave” is the flagship single from our upcoming full length debut album, Suspending Disbelief. The album was made over the course of five years, with frontman Sean Brennan playing most instruments, and producing it himself. “Tidal Wave” features a very catchy rhythm that makes you feel that everything in life is as it should be. It has recently been chosen by Australian celebrity David Genat to be the theme music for his upcoming podcast, which will feature A-list Aussie celebrities.

Queer duo Witch Weather discuss new album and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
Philadelphia-based queer punks Witch Weather have a message for anyone who feels hopeless and worthless: you are not alone. With an irresistible sound that draws from 80’s goth and lo-fi grunge, the indie duo wears their heart on their sleeve, giving voice to complex emotions that many would opt to suppress in the recesses of their minds.
Join Alchemical Records as they connect with Witch Weather to discuss the band’s new self-titled album, their search for a sense of belonging as members of the queer community, the important element that keeps the duo’s creative bond strong, and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
