Dreamy Belfast-based jangle-pop trio Sea Pinks kick off their European tour for new album, Watercourse, with Irish Shows, playing the Grand Social's Loft on May 26, the same date as the LP's release.
Being their sixth album since their 2010 inception, the trio, fronted by singer/guitarist Neil Brogan – also of Cruising– recorded the album at Belfast’s Start Together Studios with Ben McAuley, released through CF Records.
Generally evocative of the minimal, retro indie-pop, like that plied by Beat Happeningand their ilk, Watercourse is another progression in a series of recent upward steps, with their signature sound giving way to a punk-edged power-pop-inspired as the record progresses. Stream lead single ‘Into Nowhere’ and the pre-order the album on Bandcamp.
Supporting are Dublin Fortuna Pop act noise-pop quintet September Girls and eclectic lo-fi auteur David Blaney, aka Cat Palace, who just released his excellent new album - check it on Bandcamp.
