What does it sound like?:
You could be forgiven for not knowing that The Silver Seas’ 5th album has been out for 6 months. It has been the best kept secret in music. Daniel Tashian put the download out on the normal platforms himself on January 1st, without any record label or promotion other than on the bands FB page. I held out for the CD….which never came. Finally one appeared on Amazon because, apparently, they had requested one.
The CD has no credits and no information on it other than the track listing. None of the 3 tracks that were released online from the last full band studio session are on it. So, what do you get?
11 glorious, gorgeous songs, some with a lovely dancey beat, and Daniel’s wonderful flair for the kind of melody that burrows into your brain, sets up home and makes itself very comfortable indeed.
My guess is it is nearly all Daniel on this album but the lack of his fantastic band is hardly noticeable.
What does it all *mean*?
It means that The Silver Seas have cemented their place in this genre of melodic pop music alongside Daniel’s good friend Josh Rouse.
Goes well with…
The windows wide open, warm sun flooding in and making spots of light on a wooden floor.
