Tessera Skies – Out of Sight (single)
“The North East’s most talked about new act.” – The Line of Best Fit
“Otherworldly” – Drowned in Sound
Art-pop daydreamers Tessera Skies have announced the upcoming release of new single Out of Sight. The single is the follow-up to last year’s critically loved Droplet, which was described by Q as “gorgeous art-mospheric pop” and prompted The Guardian to highlight them in their 6 North East bands to watch out for in 2015.
Coming from collective backgrounds in speech, sound, science, classical and jazz, Tessera Skies create music that transcends multiple genres, blurring the lines between pop, ambient, and orchestral positing the band as a must for fans of Sigur Ros, Guillemots, Beach House and Lanterns on the Lake. Since their conception, Tessera Skies have received critical acclaim for their previous releases including a nod for ‘Soliloquy of an Astronaut’ as Simon Raymonde’s (Bella Union) Track of the Year (Times Culture Magazine). Their widely acclaimed single ‘Milieu’, produced by Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), also appeared as part of the Roundhouse 30/30 in conjunction with EMI & Generator.
Out of Sight invites the listener into a radiant and warm world, enveloping you with a powerful experience that is fresh, exciting and reassuringly genuine. Despite encompassing a massive sound that sometimes feels endless, Out of Sight never leaves you feeling out of your depth, with bright guitars and singing synthesisers expertly matched by cool vocals and unnerving percussion.
Tessera Skies’ Out of Sight will be released alongside B-Side Dreaming/Sleeping on 1st June via North Base Records and in conjunction with Amazing Radio Co.
