Introducing: Pale Seas
I’m going to put aside my USA flag for a second to rep an incredible new band from the UK. It’s a crime that Pale Seas are unsigned. Anyone up for starting a record label? For now we can enjoy these guys under the radar. A steady stream of incredible music all to ourselves…but not for long.
Pale Seas describe themselves as “dream folk” — a genre I can’t recall ever being applied in this day and age. In line with the down-tempo, shoe gazing sphere, Pale Seas create mystery and mystique with their airy, lofty backdrops. Each song will have you dipping in and out of your own personal soundtrack. Jacob Scott leads on vocals. Creating semi-haunting harmonies which are linked through deep, guitar led instrumentations.
With each new song posted to their SoundCloud, Pale Seas show another side to their complexity and depth. Love lost and heartbreak is the overarching motif that pulses throughout. Every listen results in a new favorite track. I guess it really depends on my emotional state in that moment. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
