Tinged with a sadness that is reticently uplifting, Southampton indie-pop four-piece, Pale Seas, fronted by Jacob Scott , capture a sprit that speaks to the heart.
Pale Seas is a new Southampton indie-pop band, fronted by Jacob Scott.
After dropping out of university in the summer of 2011, Jacob started writing music and returned to his hometown of Southampton to form a band with of old school friends and band-mates from former musical projects.
Reverb-drenched and otherworldly, the music is beautiful and bitter-sweet. Recalling deep, honest emotions of love and anguish, pain and joy. Tinged with a sadness that was also reticently uplifting, Jacob captured a spirit that speaks to the heart. One filled with all the torment and illation of a young man coming to grips with himself and the world he inhabits.
Since their first studio session, Pale Seas have continued to build on their success. Their first single ‘Something or Nothing’ sold out in a matter of days and was included on Radio one’s Introducing playlist, and won them a host of shows, including support slots for The War on Drugs, Beach Fossils and The Lemonheads.
The band recently released their first EP entitled ‘Places to Haunt’ via Native Pop, a beautiful 4 track introduction to the heartbreaking and heartwarming sound that is Pale Seas – a band to watch and witness live.
“Misery in its sweetest form.” – NME 8/10
“Honey for the ears.” – Clash Magazine
Having begun as a solo singer-songwriter, Sophie Jamieson’s project has evolved rapidly into something ambient and haunting. What were once quiet, melancholy folk songs are growing in strength and gaining atmosphere at the hands of her band, to provide one of the most engaging live sets taking place in London.
Formed in the summer of 2012, Object Object are a 4 piece band originating from and based in Brighton. Taking influence from bands such as Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, The Horrors and The Cure, Object Object’s sound is a combination of sweet indie-pop melodies and an aggressive rhythm section.
