Image: 1590158 London-via-Southampton star-gazers Pale Seas today unveil their
highly-anticipated debut EP Places to Haunt. By exploring themes of
youth, death and social alienation, lead singer Jacob Scott has
managed to contrast dark, ethereal soundscapes with soaring
harmonies to devastating effect. Through the EP’s four tracks, Jacob
uses this subject matter to seek hope within the macabre, and marks
himself as one of Britain’s best emerging songwriters in the process.
At its heart, Places to Haunt was born out of a growing disillusionment
with education and failure to coherently adapt to the challenges of
Encouraged by the reaction of close friends to his music, Jacob
recruited Mathew Bishop (bass) and Graham Poole (guitar) in summer
2012. The recent addition of William Hilliard (drums) has further
increased the band’s prowess.
To record the EP, Pale Seas travelled to the Isle of Wight to work with
long-term collaborator Paul Butler (Devendra Banhart / The Bees /
Michael Kiwinuka), experimenting with a number of different sounds
and textures, all of which can be heard on the record. With the first
release from the band on its way and special live shows in the
pipeline, 2014 looks set to be the year Pale Seas step out of the swell
and into the open.
