By The Sea return with mystical ambient wonder – impeccably timed for Liverpool Sound City.
When Getintothis last caught By The Sea we suggested they’d taken a well-executed side step, rather than a bold leap forward.
By circumnavigating the pitfalls of that Mersey sound, they’ve chosen to take a calculated gamble rather than follow the immediacy of their obvious touchstones.
That brave decision is reflected in new mystical ocean wonder Dream Waters – a track which plays on the musical melodicism of the past but imbues a washed out, textured, neo-kraut vibe (check that classic Klaus Dinger beat) which rather than grabbing you by the throat engulfs you slowly.
In a week where we’ve discovered a corking new band under our very noses, it’s an added bonus to see another brand new talent, growing and living up to their early potential.
By The Sea‘s Dream Waters is produced by GIT Award nominee, Bill Ryder-Jones and they play Liverpool Sound City on Thursday May 17 at 10pm.
