Sea Of Storms - Demo
Sea of Storms is from Richmond, Virginia. They play a pretty upbeat brand of what one would probably called post-rock, I suppose. At times I'm getting a vibe similar to bands like Quicksand and Statue, though when things start rocking in the upbeat sort of way there's a bit of Planes Mistaken for Stars/Samiam influence coming out.
The vocals go from a quivery melody to commanding yells that demand your attention and nail down some urgency. Musically no one is straying too far from the pack. They are playing as a team here, no one is breaking off and coming out on the forefront. Instead you just get a machine where are all the parts seem to work in harmony.
The production is pretty clear and you have no problems making out the instrumentation. I can picture this band probably being able to replicate this offering in a live setting without a problem. Featuring ex-members of Wow Owls and Mouthbreather. Check it out here.
