Sea of Bees - Free EP / Broke


Sea of Bees is someone I find myself surprised to see not previously covered on this blog (besides a mention in last years Glastonbury review), her debut LP 'Songs for the Ravens' contained some utterly gorgeous moments highlighted on the beautiful "Gnomes" and "Wizbot", downbeat heartache on "Won't Be Long" and sees Jules let loose on the reverb heavy "Marmalade", it's also worth mentioning that Julie Ann Bee plays every instrument you hear throughout.

In advance of her second album, 'Orangefarben', Jules has released a live EP entitled 'Live At The Hangar - 5.3.11' which can be downloaded for free directly from Jules' soundcloud here. Five tracks from her debut which highlight her stripped down, delicate acoustic live sound, perfectly played guitars complement a heartfelt, woozy ambience that is genuinely heavenly.

The lead-track to the aforementioned album "Broke" was released a couple of weeks back, a stirring and strong pop song that's more defiant and catchy than anything from the debut,  'Orangefarben' is due April 6th (May 1st in the US) with a UK tour planned for April included a rather appealing date with UK label mates Stealing Sheep at Hoxton Bar & Grill on April 19th (full tour dates and tickets here).
