Sea Oleena shares the first single, “If I’m” from her debut full-length Shallow, out September 30 via Lefse Records. After self-releasing two gorgeously melancholic mini-albums, 2010′s Sea Oleena and 2011′s Sleeplessness, Montréal’s Sea Oleena began writing and recording Shallow in various bedrooms and studios with the help of her brother Luke Loseth.
Shallow finds Oleena at her most focused, compelling state yet. Her tactful use of textures and instrumentation make for a blissful, cinematic listen centered on her captivating voice. Lyrically, she’s unafraid to dive into heartbreaking experiences, which are riddled throughout the album, but feelings of hope and optimism blossom in their wake. Shallow is music to drive to, music to daydream to, music to become immersed in. Because once you let go, these are the songs you can’t help but cling to.
LISTEN/SHARE: “If I’m” via SoundCloud.
Shallow will be released on September 30 via Lefse Records. Pre-order Shallow (HERE).
A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s Sea When Absent drops in the UK/EU next Tuesday, August 4th. For those of you on that side of the world who have yet to pre-order a copy you can find it at these fine retailers, below.
Following a series of well-received singles, Toronto’s Absolutely Free is ready to announce the details of their debut full-length record. Set for release on October 14th via Lefse Records, Absolutely Free finds the three piece honing and expanding their sound, all the while integrating new analog electronics, African polyrhythms, psychedelia, as well as wisps of Bollywood and Krautrock. The band has made the first single from the album, “Beneath the Air,” available to stream. Listen to the track here.Read More
