Pale Seas (formally Netherlands) are releasing their debut single ‘Something Or Nothing’ on 5th March 2012, through Fear & Records.
Now based in London, Pale Seas started their musical journey in their hometown of Southampton. Pale Seas are a four-piece who conjure up warm, rich, acoustic led dream-folk songs, evoking a sound somewhere between Beach House and Elliot Smith.
Fronted by the charismatic songwriter Jacob Scott, Netherlands’ core members include guitarist Graham Poole, Matthew Bishop on bass and Zealah Izabella Anstey on percussion and backing vocals. The extended family includes studio members Ben Clark on Viola, Peter Scott on violin and American guitarist Garret Ney.
The lo-fi bedroom demos first recorded by Jacob have been reinvigorated after the band stepped into the studio with esteemed producer duo Jimmy Robertson and Demian Castellanos, who between them have worked on debuts for Florence & The Machine, Anna Calvi, The Big Pink and Tribes.
If you pre-order the 7” before March 5, you will receive the MP3s of both tracks immediately. You will also be guaranteed free entry to the band’s single launch, which is being held at the Sebright Arms, London on Monday March 12.
