These Falling Arms

“Any Day is their sharpest set of songs to date… perfectly capturing the exquisite ennui of fumbled conversations and wasted afternoons” – UNCUT

“Prekop’s light, breathy vocal lines feel like they are glancing across the surface of the music… [and] there are rhythmic syncopations and all manner of instrumental subtleties going on just under the surface.” – MOJO

“… appeals to the head and heart in equal parts” – RECORD COLLECTOR ****

“There’s a lot of tenderness in Any Day, and it’s the softer side that impresses” – LOUDER THAN WAR

“An elegant and fluttery murmur of a song.” – STEREOGUM on ‘Any Day’

Ahead of the release of The Sea and Cake’s album Any Day on 11 May 2018, listen to the album’s second single – their first and only waltz – ‘These Falling Arms’, here: https://youtu.be/kCgZDTeKPSc

Later this month, the band embark on a North American tour before returning to Europe for dates that include a set at Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona on 29 May and a performance at the MOTH Club, London on 5 June and Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club on 6 June. Douglas McCombs (Tortoise) will play bass on the 2018 tour dates.

 

For over two decades and 11 albums, The Sea and Cake have honed a sound all their own, comprised of delicate, intertwining guitar patterns, syncopated rhythms, and airy melodies.  Any Day captures The Sea and Cake’s distinctive aural alchemy, melding longing melancholy with hopeful excitement.

Any Day is The Sea and Cake’s first album recorded as the trio of Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, and John McEntire. Since the release of their last album, the band have, in addition to shows, been creatively very busy: Prekop focusing on solo modular synthesizer and soundtrack work, including an acclaimed collaboration with artist David Hart; McEntire’s recording and touring with Tortoise, and maintaining a busy schedule as a recording engineer and producer; and Prewitt’s work as a cartoonist and illustrator, in addition to duo performances with Prekop.

The band were joined on titled track and first single ‘Any Day’ by Paul Von Mertens (a frequent collaborator with Brian Wilson) on flute and clarinet; and Nick Macri on double bass.
