Seahawks Friday download 11

From a yacht moored in a misty cover wafts this sonic goo, controlled remotely from land by the captain. It’s his watch this week and none shall pass. There’s a cryptic hint at the forthcoming govern-mental hoo-ha deep here somewhere. Can you spot it?

Sky Pigs we like to call this one.

Have a terrific weekend!

Go get it!

Seahawks - Tender Abyss (blr03)

Seahawks' first release 'Tender Abyss' (3"CD) is now for sale through bunkland records. This is the first of 3 forthcoming Seahawks releases, next up is a picture 7" through Static Caravan available soon (inc. ltd Seahawks CD) and following that a 12". More info to come soon but in the meantime here's more info on Tender Abyss...

"After two cassette tape releases on the Space Weather Sounds label, ‘Zombie OST’ and ‘Illusion Ship’, Pete Fowler and Jon Tye release their next slice of sonic exploration under their Seahawks moniker.

Seahawks are better known for their amalgam of cosmic synth, yacht rock, beach pop and deck shoe gaze but in ‘Tender Abyss’ they deliver a new age/deep listening mini opus - 18 minutes of fluttering moogs, pulsing synth, sun fried guitars and celestial banjo.

Continuing the nautical theme that can be found in many of their works, here Seahawks explore the depths of the ocean, taking you on an underwater trip that could you leave you seriously but pleasantly disorientated.
Finding vast pockets of air caught deep within subterranean caverns at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean yielded fascinating results for the crew, interesting new modulations were discovered and logged along with some unique visual distortions.
After many hours spent in a decompression chamber Seahawks finally made it back to the surface with the fruits of their underwater safari."

Their sonic experiments and field recordings were analyzed and edited together to create an aural experience for the listener at home, a wonderful and fascinating taste of the deep."
