Artist: The Sea
Label: Rusty Records
The Sea are back with their new record Rooftops, their first album release since Get It Back, and it does see the two piece do down a slightly different path than their debut.
New York is the opening track and the album and this super catchy track remains one of the best single releases of the year so far.
The impassioned choruses and anthemia guitar and piano make this the perfect upbeat opening track to this record - and I have to admit I was excited about the release of this album because of this one track.
And Rooftops really hasn’t disappointed as Peter and Alex D’Chisholme have taken their sound down a different path.
Get It Back was perhaps more of a rock record but this time around they have a much richer and varied sound - as they have experimented with different sounds and introduced new instruments this time around.
Where’s The Love has a real rock feel to it and it really is a very rousing and almost exciting track as the emotions just pour out through the vocals.
There is a change of pace again with Silly Love Song which is one of the more mischievous tracks on the record; this really is a very radio friendly tune.
There are no two tracks that are the same as Need Breath Dream is a keyboard driven track while Shake Shake has more of a rock and Blues feel to it.
Rooftops really does show the progression of The Sea as the D’Chisholme brothers have no interest in making an album that is anything like their debut.
This is an upbeat and lively record that will stay with you long after it has finished it jumps between genres and has a real depth of sound to it.
Rooftops is an album that should be constantly on repeat as it really is a truly great collection of ten exciting and very diverse tracks.
