Recorded live with a crew of close friends and engineer Jason Quever at Palmetto Studios in Los Angeles, Seeker finds Cronin pushing his often devastating power pop into darker territory from the isolation of "Show Me" to the desperation of "Fire" to the unadorned heartache of "Sold." Cronin writes, "Most of the record is backed by Ty Segall's Freedom Band. I play bass in this band. I aimed for nature. I wanted organic sounds. I wanted to bring you into the room. Jason and I talked about The Beatles's White Album a lot when placing mics. I brought a charred pine cone from the woods to the studio, just in case it would help. Fire specifically its cycle of purging and reseeding the landscape, is a central theme to the record. Death and rebirth. I was looking for something, answers, direction, peace. I am the seeker".
