In a prelude to the release of their debut album Moral Compass (due for release on 16th October) this bright new band Sick/Sea will be heading off on a live tour of America. Comprising of the two Scott siblings, Audrey and Cameron,this is just the beginning of what should be a very bright musical career.
Coming from a small town situated on the Texas/ Mexico border you might expect a more traditional country and western sound from this young duo but you would be very much mistaken. Their style is firmly rooted in a traditional Indie sound but with a fresh new twist all of their own combining crystal clear bluesy vocals with jazz overtones. They have created a confident and bold sound which is catchy and interesting. Audrey has a wonderfully rich and emotive voice which perfectly balances against Cameron’s drumming beats and bass rhythms. Their songs each tell a story and their love of fiction comes through loud and clear in their strong lyrics.
The album is balanced and flows smoothly with each song retaining its own unique value without overpowering any of the others. Their music is bright and breezy, zingy and zesty, and an awful lot of fun.
This is a well thought out creation and, given it is a debut album, it has a balance and professionalism that usually is only found in much more experienced artists. 8/10
