Sea Change – Above

Sea Change

Sea Change

Sea Change is the musical alias of the Oslo-based artist Ellen. A. W. Sundes.

The icy princess has taken the opportunity to let go with this project and acknowledges that new track ‘Above’ “is about wanting something and just not be able to see what’s good for you. Wanting it more and more even though some part of you know it will end bad. I think everyone has had a relationship like that. Not realising your destructive self, wishing things were different. It is a vulnerable song.”

Layering collected sounds, punctuating beats, scattered vocal harmonies and kinetic choruses that hark back to her late 80s childhood, Sea Change captures an enchanting sense of magic and mystery.

The track was taken from her upcoming album, ‘Breakage’. All of the tracks on the album were recorded in Ellen’s bedroom in her hometown of Oslo, and mixed by Endre Kirkesola. It is set for release on 23 February 2015.

Sekuoia – Waves

Sekuoia

Sekuoia

Sekuoia is 21-year old Danish Patrick Madsen.

To say there is a buzz surrounding this young producer is an understatement. Madsen effortlessly bridges ambient, hip hop and electronica, To date he has released two EP’s (the most recent being on Berlin’s Mooncircle), and now brings us dreamy and washed out new track ‘Waves’, which he describes below:

“Initially I wrote this track in the summer of 2013. I was spending time writing new material in order to play a long set at Roskilde Festival. One night I was playing random stuff on this Spanish guitar, and singing through a mic with loads of reverb on, and while just singing random words, the melody and lyrics just occurred. Since then I’ve been adding new elements along the way. It’s the first track I’ve made with proper lyrics, and in a way it has been the hardest track for me to produce.”

He is playing at The Waiting Room in London on 2 December 2014. More info on his facebook page.
