The soothing undulating sounds of psych-pop maestros By The Sea‘s eponymous debut LP, released in late 2012, remains a go to record and favorite from the past few years.
The record is an elegant blend of dreamy, hazy sounds brimming with carefree joie de vivre and escapism, yet with subtle shades of melancholy; and given the opportunity, the Wirral outfit are always worth a mention. The opportunity has arisen as the band have unveiled a stylish new video for ‘Alone Together’ along with generously offering the latest single, taken from their debut LP, as a free download. ‘Alone Together’ encapsulates everything that’s so great about By The Sea. Conjuring up all the aforementioned dreamy and carefree atmosphere it’s merry yet melancholic, elegant and effervescent psych-pop.
You can check out the video for ‘Alone Together’ below, and the single is available as a free download too. If you haven’t already checked out their debut record, it comes wholeheartedly recommended. Check it here.
