I featured Sea Oleena here a couple of times over three years ago now, she, Montreal's Charlotte Loseth, returns to my conscience, belatedly, after three quiet years spent writing, recording and whatever it is that incredibly talented musicians do. The result is her debut full-length record Shallow, due to be shared with the world on September 30 via Lefse Records.
The first taster "If I'm" instantly makes the wait seem worth the while, introducing a more developed, increasingly ambient continuation (and it's not just the move from a bedroom to a studio to that for that) of her soothing musical landscapes, adding rich, cinematic instrumentation to the soft, haunting lullabies that comfort and sooth in equal measure. "If I'm" is pure, beguiling art at it's finest, a vast ocean of organic textures and intimate soundscapes which pull you in and leave you in the most dreamlike of states.
For those new to Sea Oleena, her two earlier EP's are still available via Bandcamp on a pay-what-you-like basis. Your weekend just got better.
