Sea Span – New Year’s Day – Single Review

Sea Span is a US dreamwave project which first featured early last year.

Sea Span - New Year's Day

Sea Span

The latest song to surface New Year’s Day (available on bandcamp) is not a seasonal festivity rather named as such because the lyric was written on January the 1st of this year and a song of reflective introspection pondering about the opportunities at the opening of every day contemplating whether prior events will conspire against or coalesce with – on heading in to the daily realities of life.

A wistful melancholia drifts through the ears which captives the audience as the querulous optimism is equally interspersed with a pessimistic stoicism.

Sea Span - Red Dress Classic

Sea Span

The first track to surface Red Classic Dress is a more ethereal soundtrack than material previously featured with a rolling drum providing the pivot around which glimmering guitar and spectral vocal revolve in a song that has the air of sadness hanging through the just under three and a half minutes of its duration.

Sea Span – Tired Of Winning – Single Review

The US electro-gaze quartet Sea Span have a new single coming out imminently.

Sea Span - Tired Of Winning

Sea Span – Tired Of Winning

With some pleasure this dropped upon my doorstep in advance. Some may think, including Sea Span, is light tincture the correct space to espouse of agitation with social mores? You, as a regular reader of the website will know that any form of consternation to the status quo is likely to find a recommendation by me for taking time out from the day take a listen.

Tired Of Winning is a just over three and a half minute contemplative of ‘why don’t we care for each other more rather than seek to find a scapegoat’. The quartet are able to tumble the walls of barb-wire division through the very temerity of the track which lays in fragile shards of frosted synths and guitar, tremulous vocal and lightly touched percussion – demonstrating that to have impact doesn’t require largesse, rather heartfelt sentiment regardless of the vehicle utilised.

Sea Span – Winter Sublet – Single Review

The US indie-gaze quartet Sea Span I will come back to in full when there is more to hear.

With just one track, I already find myself rolling around in a duvet with Sea Span as the funkadelic shimmers of echo sparkle off the walls. There are some sounds you just want to hug and hold close for their hydrating inconsequentialism. The quartet don’t seek to embattle the listener with conjecture, rather like the Andrex puppies just make you feel better, but it is not inanity.

Sea Span is able to conjoin frothing bubbles with mellifluous electronic reverb that finds the listener becalmed, though not submerged in detritus. The quartet are able to traverse the precipitous ridge that is mainstream media tat and music that can be enjoyed for the creative spark, with their quietly spoken diatribe of bureaucratic insurrection, finding the audience looking forward to hearing more.

My apologies for the slightly delayed review of the single, but clarifying a detail or two, meant an exchange of emails which took a few days.
