Stream: The North Sea – Drinking Alone


A song “about escape and times of thought and reflection”, Dublin five-piece The North Sea have released arguably their strongest single effort to day, ‘Drinking Alone’.

The second single to be taken from their forthcoming debut album the song is a sublimed-composed slice of alt-pop “exploring themes of alienation and separation between a couple, realising there love has waned or changed”.

The band have also announced a five-date Irish tour, taking place across February and March:

February 22: Crane Lane, Cork
February 25: Cobblestone Joes, Limerick
March 5: Voodoo, Belfast
March 6: Whelans, Dublin
March 19: Roisin Dubh, Galway

‘Drinking Alone’ will be released on iTunes on February 27.
