Stop Motion Poetry returned to the studio following a multi-year sabbatical – with Sean Gould producing (Train, Blues Traveler), to record their forthcoming EP, Dead Rose. A stark contrast to their 2012 debut, produced by Mikal Blue (Augustana, Five for Fighting), Dead Rose has the Los Angeles quartet shedding softer piano melodies in favor of a more guitar-driven sound.
Their influences are deeply rooted in the 1990s and early 2000s. The songwriting of bands like Death Cab For Cutie, Gin Blossoms, Beck, and REM left a lasting impact. Clark (Vocals / Guitar) shares, “We’ve tried to focus on writing songs that have a chance at being timeless – songs that work just as well with an acoustic guitar and a voice as they do with a full band.”
The band features brothers Clark, Devin, and Spencer Beggs as well as longtime collaborator and friend Caleb Hulin.
